Episode 274: Disaster Preparedness for People Living with MS with Mary Casey-Lockyer

RealTalk MS

Nov 28 2022 • 32 mins

A quick scan of the news on any given day should remind all of us that natural disasters can strike anywhere at any time. Whether it's massive snowstorms, earthquakes, wildfires, hurricanes or floods, no one is immune when Mother Nature chooses to act up. That's why being prepared for a natural disaster is important for everyone. And if you're living with MS, it's especially important for you to have your family's emergency preparedness plan in place.

Senior Medical Advisor to National Disaster Operations at the American Red Cross, Mary Casey-Lockyer, joins me to talk about the things that people living with MS should include in their emergency preparedness plan.

We're also talking with Dr. Aaron Kesselheim, a researcher at Harvard's Brigham and Women's Hospital. And if you're on Lemtrada, Dr. Kesselheim could use your help.

We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
