Puberty Past Menopause: Caring for Women With Multiple Sclerosis

Chaired by Riley Bove, MD, this NeurologyLive® State of the Science Summit will be held virtually at 6:30 PM on September 28, 2022. Register for free now!

In addition to being at greater risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS), women with the disease can experience a variety of challenges that differ from the management of MS in their male counterparts.1 These challenges can relate to reproduction, pregnancy, and menopause, and range across the life of those with MS. Gaps in this care exist,2 and addressing them will help to improve care.

This improvement can be achieved through education and peer-to-peer information sharing. NeurologyLive® State of the Science Summit events are short meetings aiming to provide these opportunities. Designed to educate neurologists and advanced practice clinicians on the clinical benefits associated with the new science driving new thinking, our renowned faculty focuses on the most relevant topics to ultimately improve patient care, including overcoming disparities and caring for specific patient populations.

This event, chaired by Riley Bove, MD, associate professor of neurology at UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences, takes place virtually from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM on Wednesday, September 28, 2022. Register today at no cost to get access to the program, featuring various presentations on the key aspects of treatment and management from experts in the care of women with MS, including Emmanuelle Waubant, MD, PhD, professor of neurology at UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences; William L. Conte, MD, MS, director of the MS Center at Methodist Hospitals; and Maria K. Houtchens, MD, associate professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School.

Additionally, the program will feature an open-ended question-and-answer portion to further the discussion. Registration for this virtual event is complimentary, and neurologists and advanced practice clinicians are encouraged to share their feedback in our post-event survey.

Presentation topics include the following:

  • Caring for the Adolescent Patient — Emmanuelle Waubant, MD, PhD
  • Sex, Gender, and LGBTQ Considerations in MS — William L. Conte, MD, MS
  • Caring for Pregnant Women With MS — Maria K. Houtchens, MD
  • Caring for Women During Menopause and Beyond — Riley Bove, MD
