The Tanner Center and Foundation for MS in Birmingham, AL - was fortunate to have been awarded a PCORI grant for Alabama and Mississippi researching direct rehabilitation services versus tele rehabilitation services for persons with MS.


A $5.8 million study of whether patients get as much benefit from an exercise-based rehabilitation program delivered via Internet or telephone as when the therapy is provided in a clinic. Evidence shows that exercise, yoga, and other such therapies can alleviate symptoms and improving function, but clinics that can provide such services are scare in rural and low-income areas. The trial, led by a research team based at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, will be conducted in Alabama and Mississippi.
