COVID-19 and MS Summit: Infections and Immunizations in the Era of COVID-19

Watch the "COVID-19 and MS Summit – Infections and Immunizations in the Era of COVID-19" broadcast today!

As the US and beyond experience another wave of COVID-19, people with chronic diseases like multiple sclerosis and their health care providers continue to struggle to navigate the latest health guidance. In an effort to educate both communities, NeurologyLive®, the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC), and Can Do MS have produced a virtual summit where experts in immunology, virology, and neurology discuss infections and MS, the persistence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the impact of viral variants, the current vaccine landscape, and DMT guidance in a joint forum tailored for health care providers (HCP) as well as patients and caregivers.

Below, view recordings of both the HCP- and patient/caregiver-focused webinars.
