Robots?? Really??? The answer is YES! World renowned robotics expert Dr. Maja Mataric joins us on the podcast, and we're talking about how socially assistive robots could be real game-changers for people living with MS and other chronic conditions, as well as their caregivers.
We're also talking about the $24.4 million investment by the National MS Society that will support 64 new MS research projects. We'll tell you about the research team at Oregon Health & Science University that believes they have solved remyelination! We'll show you how you can stay cool this summer and how you can get a brand new laptop or desktop computer from the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation…for free!
We're reminding you that there's still time for you to see the video replay of an outstanding progressive MS webinar, and we'll even tell you about the woman living with MS who decided to get her stem cell transplant live on Facebook!
We have a lot to talk about. Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
