My guest is Dr. Laura Rice, an expert in rehabilitation science and technology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champagne. Dr. Rice's focus is on maximizing the quality of life and community participation among wheelchair users. We're talking with Dr. Rice about her new study, designed to prevent falls among wheelchair users.
We'll also tell you about the international team of scientists who succeeded in mapping human microglia, and were surprised by what they found. We'll get you up to speed on the Credit for Caring Act, a bipartisan bill that's been designed to give family caregivers a financial boost. And we'll tell you where to register for the MS Association of America's The Many Faces of MS: Exploring Diversity & Differences webinar, being hosted by Dr. Mitzi Joi Williams.
We have a lot to talk about. Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
