While we're tracking the breakthroughs and discoveries that move us closer to solving the riddle of multiple sclerosis, it's also important to remember that people living with MS need help today. Some of them need help with even the most basic sorts of daily tasks. My guests on the podcast are Angela Lett and Alison Payne from Helping Hands, a non-profit organization that helps adults with MS and other mobility impairments live independent lives by providing them with a very special service animal — a highly trained capuchin monkey — to live in their home and assist them with the tasks of everyday living.
We're also talking about how 3D printing technology is paving the way for important MS research. And we're talking about the cutting-edge research by an award-winning neuroscientist who is investigating the effects of aging on mylenation. And Canadian researchers may have identified an anti-depressant that can be re-purposed to treat Progressive MS.
We have a lot to talk about! So are you ready for RealTalk MS?
