Coyle, M.D., professor of neurology, vice chair of clinical affairs and director of the MS Comprehensive Care Center at Stony Brook University Medical Center; Frederick W.

“These past several months our partnership with the CMSC has escalated to producing and disseminating extremely important education for neurology professionals everywhere,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, the parent company of NeurologyLive®. “With the CMSC being the ongoing resource for all those affected by multiple sclerosis, it was only right to launch an MS Cure Connections® video series program with them. Through this series, the health care team and the patients and families who receive MS care will get expert perspectives on hot topics in MS that will lead to improved patient care and outcomes.”
As part of the second video series, NeurologyLive® and CMSC will host a live, interactive webcast titled “Strategies for Managing Advanced Disease in Multiple Sclerosis during COVID-19” on Tuesday, March 23 at 7:00 p.m. EST. This innovative program will provide health care professionals, patients and care partners with a detailed patient journey in managing progressive MS. It also will discuss the use of telehealth for diagnosis and treatment, review the pharmacologic management of progressive MS and address quality of life, complementary and natural therapies for symptom control, and support networks for patients, caregivers and clinicians.
