We’re keeping it real about women and MS—learn about the sensitive topics they face

Expert neurologists Dr. Kaplan and Dr. Klineova discuss the She Talks MS series. They explain why they’re passionate about addressing the sensitive but important topics that affect women living with MS.

Transcript

Dr. Wanda Castro: My name is Wanda Castro. I work with Biogen. And I will be hosting our She Talks MS series. In this series, we will be sitting down with women living with multiple sclerosis, and we will be discussing very sensitive but important topics. Dr. Kaplan, can you tell us how this idea got started?

Dr. Tamara Kaplan (Neurology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital): We were all meeting to discuss how can we best support the MS community? And we came to realize that there is really a lack of resources that are specific to women’s issues in MS. And so we teamed up with Biogen to make this happen.

Wanda: Dr. Klineova, can you tell us what topics are important?

Dr. Klineova (Neurology, Mount Sinai Health System): We looked in our clinical practice and tried to identify the key areas that women feel that are not addressed. Those four main topics that we found were related to pregnancy, mental and emotional wellness, bladder and bowel issues, and sexual health.

Dr. Kaplan: I think a lot of women struggle in silence because they don’t know how to talk about it. We hope that this series helps empower those women.

Wanda: Thank you both so much. I’m very excited to continue this conversation and share with the Above MS community.

Dr. Klineova: Thank you for having us both.

Everyone’s experience with multiple sclerosis (MS) is different. Your healthcare provider should always be your primary source of information. The people in this video are paid spokespeople for Biogen.
