Episode 296: Everything You Should Know About MS Relapses with Dr. Sam Hooshmand

RealTalk MS

May 1 2023 • 35 mins

This week, we're in New York, attending the Pathways To Cures Global Summit. The National MS Society is convening the world -- bringing together the best and brightest minds in MS research, the CEOs of major MS Societies, representatives from the pharmaceutical industry and people affected by MS -- to update the scientific foundation of the Pathways To Cures research roadmap and set the global MS research agenda for the next 3-5 years. Don't miss next week's episode of RealTalk MS, when you'll hear from many of the experts on hand for this historic meeting.

In this week's episode, we're talking about exacerbations, flares, attacks -- these are just some of the words we use when we're describing an MS relapse. Relapses impact over 85% of the people living with MS. And today, we're reviewing the things you need to know when it comes to MS relapses with Dr. Sam Hooshmand, the Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic at the Milwaukee Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

We're also extending an invitation for you to spend a quick couple of minutes taking the RealTalk MS listener survey...and we're adding some motivation to that invitation by giving you an opportunity to win a $100 Amazon gift card.

We'll introduce you to a remarkable MS research scientist and the Chair of the National MS Society's Scientific Advisory Committee, Dr. Tika Benveniste.

We're sharing the outcome of a study that compared the benefits of yoga and physical therapy for people living with MS.

And we'll tell you about a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Cariloop and Walgreens that's designed to support MS caregivers.

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