Jack Osbourne and Teva Launch New Educational Multiple Sclerosis Website

Jack Osbourne and Teva Launch New Educational Multiple Sclerosis Website  Reality TV star Jack Osbourne has partnered with Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. to launch a new website as part of a three-year campaign called You Don’t Know Jack About MS. The site can be viewed here: www.youdontknowjackaboutms.com. The campaign is meant to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis (MS), as well as offer resources to help the MS community in the United States.


Jack Osbourne became known to the American public after the successful MTV reality show The Osbournes between 2002 and 2004, which chronicled the daily lives of rock star Ozzy Osbourne and his family. In 2012, Jack was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), the most common form of the disease. After the diagnosis, Osbourne committed himself to helping others with the same condition and this project aims to provide new content, resources, and a docu-series.
The website will feature Jack’s journey dealing with RRMS, and is expected to help not only MS patients, but also families, friends, and caregivers better manage and cope with the diagnosis and the daily struggle of living with the disease. The project, which was developed by Jack and Teva, was launched in celebration of World Multiple Sclerosis Day on May 27th.
“I have a personal interest in developing the new You Don’t Know Jack About MS website to make it as helpful and relatable as possible for those living with MS, like myself,” said Osbourne in a press release. “Since my diagnosis three years ago, I have found so much satisfaction in helping others better understand MS, and I hope the new content inspires others who are living with MS to take an active role in how they manage their disease.”
At You Don’t Know Jack About MS, visitors will find stories of MS patients and advocates who will try to dispel myths and misconceptions about the disease, downloadable tools and resources, as well as an online video docu-series and a blog, both of which focused on chronicling Jack’s personal experience with the disease.
