MS Cure Fund’s Free Fall Health Fair, November 22 in Waltham, MA at the Westin Waltham Hotel, is shaping up to be both very popular and ground breaking at the same time. On the heels of MS Boston 2014 (the ACTRIMS/ECTRIMS joint sexennial meeting in the America’s), MS Cure Fund’s Free Fall Health Fair will focus on providing updates on critical MS research to two distinct audiences in separate presentation sessions. Our morning session will focus on providing patients with the most relevant information available in the areas of stem cells research; MRI brain mapping; and the growing area of the physical therapy and improved MS symptoms. The afternoon session will have the same topics, but be presented in a more advanced clinical manner to be of value and practical use to physicians caring for and treating those living with MS.
MS Cure Fund is pleased to announce Dr. Mark Freedman, Sr. Scientist; Professor of Neurology; Director, Multiple Sclerosis Research; University of Ottawa and Ottawa Hospital-General Campus. Dr. Freedman is widely considered one of the world’s foremost experts in stem cell research. Dr. Freedman will present “Betaseron to Stems Cells, How Far We’ve Come”.
Dr. Eric Klawiter, MD, MSc of Massachusetts General Hospital will present “Mapping Brain Connections with MRI in MS”. Remarkable advances continue to be made in the area of enhanced MRI diagnostics and discovery. Dr. Klawiter will bring us up to speed on what’s new and where MRI developments
The final speaker for the day will be physical therapist John Marmarou, DPT, MSCS and MS PT Specialist. John is one of the nation’s pioneers in treating the physical symptoms of MS through advanced physical therapy techniques. John has recently opened Massachusetts first physical therapy center dedicated to treating MS patients in Waltham, MA. Join us for this badly needed look into bettering the lives of those living with MS through physical therapy.
