Testimonials:

“As a neuroscientist actively dedicated to creating the next generation of regenerative therapeutics in multiple sclerosis, patient engagement and community advocacy has become a passion of mine. My company, Novoron Bioscience, has committed to a mantra of putting patient outcomes above the more traditional commercial concerns of regulatory difficulty, profitability, and taking the path of least resistance. As such, we have always emphasized taking from the patient experience and soliciting patient feedback in informing our approach to the creation of our therapeutics. As such, it was an extreme pleasure to appear on the MS & Me where I had the opportunity to not only share the story of Novoron, but discuss the issues related to this disease that I am passionate about. It is not often that I am afforded the chance to cover such a diverse array of topics ranging from cutting edge therapeutic strategies all the way to pharma business development and pricing rationale for new drugs. Dissemination of accurate and reliable scientific information is crucial for a motivated and passionate patient population such as exists in MS. The work done in platforms such as MS & Me is not just valuable for informing patients of the state of the field, but also in combatting much of the disinformation and exploitation that plagues this and other diseases. As a result, I am grateful for the efforts of Erika and Jessica, and others like them, and it was my pleasure to appear on their show. I look forward to a return visit.” – Phd Dr. Travis Stiles CEO Novoron Bioscience

“We had a great experience serving as guests on MS & Me Radio, and we were honored to be among so many reputable guests who help others to live their best lives with this disease. The radio program gives all of us living with MS a great platform for sharing our stories and learning from others. Erika and her team are fantastic moderators who truly understand life with MS and can get at the heart of the issues we all are thinking about.”

“I’ve been on many, many TV, radio shows and podcasts and within that realm, I’d say that my experience on MS&Me was one of the best. Great hosts, great questions from listeners and great information on many topics. I’d be happy to appear at any time in the future. Overall it hit a high point.” –  Dr. Patricia Farrell
