Episode Info:

This week, the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis is hosting the ECTRIMS 2018 Congress in Berlin, Germany. It's the largest MS conference in the world. And you can look forward to special episodes of RealTalk MS direct from ECTRIMS, on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, October 10th, 11th, and 12th!   You'll get the news, hear the interviews, and you'll be the first to  get the research updates and announcements as they're being made at the largest MS conference in the world. And if you have the RealTalk MS app (available free at the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store), you'll have access to exclusive bonus content from ECTRIMS that will only be available in the app. (HINT: The ECTRIMS  bonus content starts with this episode!) #ECTRIMS2018 gets underway tomorrow. Today, we're talking about the first-of-its-kind patient-focused drug development collaboration between the Accelerated Cure Project for MS and EMD Serono. We'll tell you about the $12 million dollar commitment that the National MS Society just made to support 40 different MS research projects. We'll let you know where to download the new assistive technology app that Google just released that enables you to operate your Android phone (and all the apps!) completely hands-free. And we'll tell you how and why you want to let your Senator know to vote YES on Senate Joint Resolution 63.

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