Summertime traditionally means getting out of the house, enjoying outdoor activities, and being active. But if you're living with MS, outdoor activity and summertime temperatures can raise red flags when it comes to your day-to-day quality of life. My guest is Dr. Colin Lenington, an Occupational Therapist and Clinical Specialist at the VA Long Beach Healthcare System and we're talking about getting outside, staying safe, and keeping cool while you enjoy your summer activities. We're joining the World Federation of Neurology and the global MS community on July 22nd, to celebrate World Brain Day 2021. This year's theme is Stop Multiple Sclerosis and we'll tell you where and how to register for the upcoming World Brain Day webinar. We're also talking about study results that show the impact of delaying an Ocrevus infusion in order to enhance the effect of a COVID-19 vaccination. We'll tell you about a study in the U.K. that followed 120 people with MS who received autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (aHSCT). We'll share news about a new way to successfully cross the blood-brain barrier and deliver medicines to the central nervous system. (And we'll explain why that matters when it comes to treating MS) And we'll tell you about a study of veterans with MS that should convince anyone to adhere to their DMT treatment plan. We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
