Multiple Sclerosis with Tara DeSilva
Homewood Library - Thursday, February 26, at 6:30 p.m. in the Large Auditorium
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which your immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers your nerves. Myelin damage disrupts communication between your brain and the rest of your body. Signs and symptoms vary widely, depending on the amount of damage and which nerves are affected. Treatments can help speed recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms. Even though there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, treatment typically focuses on speeding recovery from attacks, slowing the progression of the disease and managing symptoms. Join us as Dr. DeSilva reports on the latest treatments.
Registration is required to attend:
Epigenetics and Neuroplasticity
