I have a Ph.D. but it's not in a medical field. I feel that I may have some skills that are useful in sorting through the vast amount of material about MS and maybe, after many years of contact with MS research, being able to select at least some significant items among the news and articles that come my way.

I get regular e-mails from many medical sources, including JAMA, NEJM, BMJ, PubMed, Berkeley Wellness, Neurology, and PLoS.  I also subscribe to the newsletters and other publications from the National MS Society, the MSAA and the MS Foundation. 

I don't work hard at publicizing this site. I don't send regular e-mails to anyone and don't ever solicit donations. Many with MS have been impoverished as a result of their disorder. I have no wish to make life more difficult for them by asking for funds.

I try to keep in mind that the readers here are people with MS (or with an interest in MS), not medical practitioners or researchers, and I try to avoid posting material that is too technical.

Please don't hesitate to post any material that you think would be of interest.
