The online platform DrTalks is offering a free virtual summit this summer aimed at helping multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and their caregivers better manage daily life with the progressive neurodegenerative condition.

The event is slated for July 5-11, and has more than four dozen speakers lined up.

Talks include “Cognitive Decline Is Now Optional: Here’s Why and How,” “Movement Is Medicine – How Are You Moving,” “Understanding the Role of Stem Cell Therapy in the Setting of Multiple Sclerosis,” and “How Nutrition Impacts Immune Function and Multiple Sclerosis.”

By offering possible solutions to disparate MS symptoms, the overarching aim of the Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmune Summit is to empower people with MS to feel hopeful about their future, the organizers say. Registration is required and is done via the event webpage.

“This online event is free to attend and will provide a wealth of information and resources for people with multiple sclerosis (MS), as well as those who may be experiencing neurological symptoms that are currently being evaluated,” DrTalks states in a press release.
