Multiple Sclerosis Foundation starts online radio station

The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation on Monday announced the launch of MSFocusRadio.org, billed as the first online radio station for the MS community. The nonprofit will broadcast content round-the-clock that it produces with health care experts and other partners aiming to help people with the illness.

The nonprofit has found a way to expand its reach: an online radio station even available with a free mobile app.

The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation on Monday announced the launch of MSFocusRadio.org, billed as the first online radio station for the MS community. The nonprofit will broadcast content round-the-clock that it produces with health care experts and other partners aiming to help people with the illness.

"Because people with MS tend to have visual impairment — they lose their vision or it can come and go — we are always looking to incorporate alternative forms of communication" beyond magazines or other reading materials, said Kasey Minnis, director of operations and communications.

Some of the radio content will be audio versions of the group's magazine articles, she said.

About 400,000 people in the United States have MS, a chronic disease of the central nervous system.

The Foundation, started in 1986, employs about 40 people full-time and at least 100 more part-time to offer services to people afflicted. It operated last year with a budget of about $8 million, said Minnis.
