A Patient's writings: Hope and Collaboration: A Preview Of What I’ll Be Writing About As A Blogger For CMSC’s Annual Event

By Cathy Chester—June 7, 2015
A few months ago I was asked by June Halper, CEO of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) to be CMSC’s first blogger. I’ve attended this annual event before but never as part of the press corps.
As a blogger and patient I was excited at the opportunity to see old friends, make new ones and hear about MS care and research at the largest and most comprehensive meeting on everything MS.
Being CMSC’s blogger not only allowed me access into my choice of pages and pages of presentations, but I was also invited to events such as awards ceremonies and a small gathering to personally meet David Osmond, son of Alan Osmond from the original Osmond Brothers. Both father and son have MS. (More on that at a later date.)
Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing with you what I learned, including interviews with some of the medical professionals who presented in Indianapolis.
Get ready to be fascinated. Here are a few of the many topics I’ll be writing about:
  • Cannibis and Cognitive Dysfunction
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis
  • Using Social Media to Manage and Research MS
  • Factors in Gut Microbiome
  • Robotic Technology
  • Psychotherapy in MS
  • Lifestyle and Unconventional Medicine
  • The Progressive Alliance
  • Health and Wellness
  • Foundation of MS Centers (and the medical students, with their posters, who were awarded money from FMSC to conduct studies)
There were two words I heard over and over again last week. One was “collaborative” and the other was “hope.”
