What challenges do patients with MS in underrepresented populations face, and how can we close these treatment gaps?

  • Overview

    In past studies, it was seen that multiple sclerosis was more prevalent in White individuals from Northern European ancestry. However, more recent data is showing that MS can happen in anyone and everyone, and there may be slight clinical variations in the disease when we look at different demographic populations. So how can we better serve minority communities? To dive in further, Dr. Charles Turck is joined by Dr. Tirisham Gyang, Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Ohio State University School of Medicine, and Dr. Gopika Kutty, Neurologist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

    Read their publication, titled “Disparities in Multiple Sclerosis: Incorporating Equity into Clinical Care and Research,” which was published on Practical Neurology in July 2023.
