Hey Everyone!

Postby dswiii » Mon Mar 26, 2007 12:32 pm

Hey Everyone! My name is David Williams and I have worked in the MS and Neuroscience world for about seven years now. Although I'm not a patient, I have worked to help people with MS through community development initiatives. In 2001, I worked with Montel Williams doing numerous online chat sessions, an appearance at the Los Angeles Health Expo, helped launch the Montel Williams Foundation website, and even appeared on his show.

Yeah, the MWF didn't really get off the ground the way it should have. Like I said, I just helped launch the website. Montel has helped raise funds for MS, though. Awareness was raised a lot, too.

Who else do people think should step up around MS?

All of us...

I think we all have to step up. The issue isn't research $$ or even pharma money going into MS. That's happening. The problem is no one really knows which medication to take, and what other treatments can help.

MRF Podcast with Scott Johnson and Dr. Bob Miller

Postby nicolem » Tue Mar 27, 2007 10:24 am

This link will take you to an interesting and informative March 24th interview Scott and Dr. Miller did with host Marc Pelletier of Futures in Biotech. It's about 1 hour. I think the interview was conducted in a way that would make it interesting to both scientists and MS novices.

Nicole,

Thanks for the message. I'm interested in working with the Myelin Repair Foundation. With our real-world data used for research, we can partner to gain more answers.

Arron,

I appreciate the rules of the forum, as ours are the same. The key here is that our data are collected for research purposes to help figure out what treatments will help patients TODAY. Patients can learn from other patients what works by seeing clinical outcomes, not just anecdotal evidence. I apologize if I broke the rules, but people should know about this. The breakthroughs we've already achieved in ALS are astonishing.

I apologize to the This Is MS community if I offended anyone.

Best,
David
