Annual Multiple Sclerosis Research Update

Stanley Cohan, M.D., Ph.D.

Featuring Stanley Cohan, M.D., Ph.D., medical director, Providence MS Center

Wednesday, Nov. 16 • Noon – 1 p.m.

 

Research matters. It changes how care is delivered and offers hope for the future. Much of what we know today about multiple sclerosis was learned through research at Providence Multiple Sclerosis Center.

Join us online as Dr. Cohan reports on his team’s most exciting research studies – many of which were funded by donors like you. 
  • How AI is helping to detect disease progression earlier and what we hope to learn about the efficacy of current therapies
  • How our registries are helping to address care disparities and promote health equity for people with MS
  • What we’re learning about genomic sequencing and what it means for future MS patients
