Episode 175: People-Powered MS Research with the CEO of iConquerMS Sara Loud

Research creates the future for people affected by MS. And clinical research can't happen without your participation. Joining me as my guest is Sara Loud, the CEO of iConquerMS, the people-powered-research network that puts you at the center of MS research.   We're also celebrating a whole list of MS advocacy wins that will translate into making life better for people living with MS in the United States.   We'll tell you about a study that clearly demonstrates why it's essential to start disease-modifying therapy once someone receives an MS diagnosis.   We're sharing the results of a study about MS-related pain. And we'll tell you about a new set of Amazon Alexa features that make being a long-distance care partner easier.   We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
