My guest this week is Dr. Rhonda Voskuhl, Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Program at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and the Jack H. Skirball professor of Multiple Sclerosis Research. Dr. Voskuhl is responsible for first identifying that understanding the gender differences in the disease is an important part of understanding MS. This is one of my favorite interviews, and it's packed with great information.
We're also talking about the potential of data and technology to improve care for people living with MS, how MS and depression can lead to high rates of Alexithymia among people living with MS, how recognizing non-traditional MS symptoms can lead to getting an MS diagnosis years earlier, and an opportunity for African-Americans with MS to participate in a UCSF study.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS?
