MS Awareness -- Day 3

Today I had a doctor appointment, so I’m later than usual with my post. Instead of listening to the 12 minute webcast, I read the transcript.

Dr. David Hafler says that our children do have a higher risk than the general population of developing MS, but only 1 – 3 percent higher because of a genetic disposition. It has been only in the two or three years that genetic researchers have been able to make great strides because of DNA tools and patterns. He says it is a special time in science.

After you see the presentation, spend a few minutes learning about the changing faces of MS.

come face to face with MS

Thurday’s webcast is Health Policies and Challenges of Daily Life with MS presented by Dr. Sarah Minden and Dr. Lisa Iezzoni.
