Well, the Tysabri thing is his "angle", shall we say. If you plant the right seeds, though, when talking to reporters (I'm sure he'll laugh like crazy at me over this one), you can make other "points" while you are at it.
Trust me, I made sure he KNEW that this type of problem (MS being taken advantage of and/or not getting the attention it needs) was prevelant! (To name just one lead-in. And I made sure he realized this was MS Awareness Month.) Oh, there's a way to get your point across, allright. Plus, it never hurts to have a professional connection with a reporter.
I'm afraid that I'm not able to travel much. Wish I could more often, though. So unfortunately, no, I won't be able to come to New York. (Although I will admit, it has been on my mind lately as a trip to plan sometime in the near future.)
