Thank you to all who attended the 2018 Symposium. We are pleased to share some of the slides that were presented by this year's speakers.
Being in Harmony & Research Update by Saud A.Sadiq, MD, FAAN
Dr. Sadiq began this year's event with some thoughts on being in harmony and how stress and worrying about things that are not in our control impact our well-being. This following slide helps illustrate that. Dr. Sadiq also presented a research update and discussed the latest experiments taking place in the Tisch MS Lab. Due to the fact, this work is not yet published, we are unable to make these slides available on social media for public viewing. For more information on the investigations taking place at Tisch MSRCNY, please visit the research section of our website: www.tischms.org/research
