National MS Society Channel on YouTube

I recently discovered that the National Multiple Sclerosis Society has their own Channel on YouTube.

The following are some new videos added this week which briefly discuss stages of diagnosis and the types of Multiple Sclerosis:

Dr. Rock Heyman defines the term clinically isolated syndrome, and describes what it means to have possible MS.

Dr. Gabriel Pardo talks about the resources available to help people who have recently been diagnosed with MS, as well as the importance of early treatment to slow disease progression.

Dr. Robert Fallis describes relapsing-remitting MS, the most common form of the disease, and explains what occurs in the central nervous system during relapses and remissions.

Dr. Rock Heyman describes primary-progressive MS and the ways in which it differs from other forms of the disease.

Dr. Aaron Miller describes the available treatment options and resources for people living with advanced MS, and highlights the ongoing research efforts to repair the damaged nervous system.


  1. They have their own channel? You'd think they would publish this in their magazine. Unless they did and I just overlooked it, which is a distinct possibility. :)

  2. All old, white THERE'S a glass ceiling that begs to be broken!! LOL
