“We have focused a lot in recent years on reserve, which is a big part of my approach to MS in the topographical model of MS and it's a big part of what our MS Center does here at Mount Sinai. We've spent a lot of time thinking about boosting reserve through exercise and diet, positive brain health related behavior in MS.”
Stephen Krieger, MD, a neurologist at the Corinne Goldsmith Dickinson Center for MS, served as an multiple sclerosis (MS) cochair at the 2022 International Congress on the Future of Neurology (IFN) annual meeting, held September 23-24, in New York City. He attended the conference in-person and noted that it was nice to be at an event that expanded on the different specialties within neurology.
He was involved in the MS section, and participated as a cochair in a medical crossfire on the topic of “Will COVID Change MS Care Forever?” as well as the movement disorder section. One of Kreiger’s takeaways from the conference was the focus on positive brain health in MS, including behaviors such as boosting reserve through exercise and diet.
In a recent interview with NeurologyLive®, Krieger shared his positive experience at the IFN annual meeting as an MS cochair. He expressed his hopes for the conference in the future years as the program provides new information in neurology, and continues to get more people to get involved.
