Survey Says
















































If you visited Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum (MSDF) within the past few weeks, you may have been presented with a brief survey. We wanted to learn some things about our readers, and we thank all 831 of you who responded. We hope it wasn’t too annoying or intrusive.

MSDF was designed for multiple sclerosis researchers and clinicians, and the biggest surprise was that people with MS made up the largest single category of visitors, followed by caregivers, family, and friends of people with MS. Perhaps we shouldn’t have been surprised by this. As our friends at iConquerMS have demonstrated, people with MS are in the vanguard of empowered patients who demand detailed, accurate, and impartial information about their conditions in order to take control of their own health.

Important disclaimers: This survey was not scientific and not randomized. People visiting msdiscovery.org could choose to complete the survey, or they could bypass it entirely. They could answer all the questions or any subset. They could indicate membership in a single category or in multiple categories. And there is no way to ensure that people were telling the truth.

Since people could choose multiple categories, it’s not quite kosher to add up the patients and the caregivers/friends/family and compare them with the sum of the professional categories. An individual could indicate that she was a physician, a research scientist, and a person with MS, for example. However, when we do sum the categories we see that roughly equal numbers of people fall into professional and “civilian” categories.

Some of the most interesting survey results came from the 446 free-form answers to the question, “Why are you visiting the Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum today?”
