AIMS Helps To Improve The Care Of Multiple Sclerosis In Women

Let us tenderly and kindly cherish, therefore, the means of knowledge. Let us dare to read, think, speak and write.” ~John Adams

We’ve always known that more women than men are diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. According to new data reported on the website Advances in Multiple Sclerosis (AIMS), women are diagnosed three times more than men. So AIMS is, well, taking AIM to address this issue by providing a place for women to go to learn as much about their disease as possible.

Created by The Consortium of MS Centers (CMSC), The France Foundation and Nurse Practitioner Alternatives (NPA), the purpose of AIMS is to provide women with up-to-date information on MS from highly respected members of the medical community.

In the comfort of your own home you’ll be able to listen to five new videos specific to women with MS conducted by experts in their field.

Take a look at the first released video about the Diagnosis and Management of Sexual Dysfunction with Dr. Susan Rubin of NorthShore University Health System and Dr. Jacqueline Bernard of The University of Chicago Medical Center.

At the end of March, AIMS will have released four more videos on the following topics that are of interest to women:
  • Pregnancy and the MS Patient: Pre-Pregnancy Through Post-Partum
  • Key Considerations for the MS Patient and Breastfeeding
  • Menarche, Menstruation, Menopause and MS
  • Contraceptive Techniques
To learn more about MS take a look at some of the on-demand videos offered on the AIMS site, such as Current and Emerging Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis with Dr. Joseph R. Berger of The University of Pennsylvania. Or podcasts such as Switching Therapy and JCV with Dr. Guy Buckle of Harvard Medical School.
