A lot of people visit the RealTalk MS website to listen to each podcast episode. I wanted to make that easier to do, so last week I released the RealTalk MS app for iOS or Android smartphones and tablets. The app will always have the latest episode of RealTalk MS cued up and ready for you to listen to, and it also lets me share all kinds of bonus content with you. Head to the Apple App Store to download the iOS version of the app, or the Google Play Store to download the Android version of the app. It's the best way to stay connected to the podcast! And speaking of staying connected to the podcast, next week, the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis is hosting the ECTRIMS 2018 Congress in Berlin, Germany. It's the largest MS conference in the world. I'll be there, and you can look forward to special episodes of RealTalk MS, next Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, October 10th, 11th, and 12th! You'll get the news, hear the interviews, and you'll be the first to get the research updates and announcements as they're being made at the largest MS conference in the world. And if you have the RealTalk MS app, you might even find some exclusive content from ECTRIMS that will only be available in the app. So next week, connect with the RealTalk MS podcast, and I'll do my best to connect you to ECTRIMS 2018.
We're also talking about a research review that reminds us how very bad smoking is for people living with MS, and the results of a 10-year study in the UK about the cost-effectiveness and clinical effectiveness of 4 MS disease modifying therapies. We'll give you the details behind the congressional funding for the National Neurological Conditions Surveillance System in the U.S. And if you're African-American and living with MS, we'll tell you about how you can participate in an MS genetics study being conducted by UCSF.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS?
