Episode 90: The MS Association of America with President & CEO Gina Murdoch

Publication date: May 20, 2019

The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, or MSAA, provides programs and resources designed to improve the lives of people affected by MS. Whether it’s financial assistance for an MRI exam, a new computer, mobility equipment, or even a cooling vest, the MSAA can help. My guest today is Gina Murdoch, the President and CEO of the MSAA, and we’re talking about the organization’s almost 50-year history, their shared management philosophy of living with MS, and we’re taking a deeper dive into into some of their remarkable programs. We’re also talking about the Progressive MS Alliance Scientific Steering Committee Meeting that begins tomorrow in Copenhagen, Denmark. You’ll hear about the Patient 360 meeting that EMD Serono hosted last week in Washington, D.C., and I’ll tell you why that meeting was so special to me. We’re talking about the just announced $100,000 research grant to investigate the challenges faced by people of color who are living with MS and their caregivers. You’ll learn about the special search engine that matches MS patients with financial support for disease-modifying therapy. We’ll tell you about 2 new programs from Can-Do MS, focused on young adults who are living with MS and people who are living with secondary progressive MS. And you’ll find out how you can be my special guest on the 100th episode of RealTalk MS. We have a lot to talk about. Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
