In less than a decade, Meat Fight has actually grown from a backyard barbecue to a non-profit organization that hosts several different fundraising events, offers some unique programs for people affected by MS, and has raised more than $1 million dollars for the National MS Society. My guest today is Alice Laussade, the creator of Meat Fight, and the very definition of a real MS Warrior.
We're also talking about a new research initiative to investigate cannabis and MS. We'll tell you about the potential dangers of unregulated stem cell therapy procedures, a start-up that's out to make getting to your medical appointments easier than it's ever been, and a research study that you can complete from the comfort of your own home — and get compensated for your time!
We have a lot to talk about. Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
