Episode 124: First Descents with Brad Ludden

Publication date: Jan 13, 2020

We’re exploring the healing power of adventure. My guest is Brad Ludden, the founder of First Descents, a non-profit organization that, since 2001, has taken over 10,000 young adult oncology patients on more than 1,000 outdoor adventures that feature activities like rock-climbing, kayaking, and surfing. Last year, First Descents expanded their programming to include outdoor adventures designed for young adults living with MS. And every one of these adventures is offered at no cost to the participants. We’re also talking about the International Progressive MS Alliance’s upcoming Facebook Live event, Symptom Management & Well-Being in Progressive MS: Advancing Research and Treatment. It takes place next week, and we’ll tell you how you can register to be a part of it. We’re talking about a research team at the Mayo Clinic that discovered a molecule that serves as a “switch” for myelin repair. You’ll hear about a study that’s going to compare the effectiveness of stem cell treatment with high-efficacy disease-modifying therapies for treating relapsing MS. And we’ll tell you how you can register as a potential participant. We have a lot to talk about!
