Head of Stanford Multiple Sclerosis clinic to attend Crush MS





























Dr. Jeffrey Dunn, director of the Stanford Multiple Sclerosis Center, will be attending this year’s second annual Crush MS Summer Celebration at Reid Family Vineyards on Aug. 8 from 3-6 p.m.

Dunn, one of the country’s top multiple sclerosis experts, has been a principal investigator in more than 20 clinical trials of new and emerging treatments for MS, many of which have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use.

“Our group is working to develop novel approaches to measure blood to a depth that has never before been achievable,” Dr. Reid said. “We anticipate that these new measurement approaches will enable us to find new biomarkers to diagnose MS better, identify flare-ups before they begin and better target therapies.”

Crush MS is a loose association of local wineries that are willing to “pour for a cure.” Its mission is to raise funds, promote awareness, find a cure and help people live well with MS.

Last year’s inaugural Crush MS raised thousands of dollars to help find a cure for multiple sclerosis. The event drew more than 400 people who enjoyed an afternoon nibbling, sipping and tapping their toes to the sounds of local musicians. This year’s affair will feature music by Circus Moon, Full Chizel, The Seasoned Four, and Silver Oak winemaker Dan Baron on the mandolin.

Guests will sample wines from some of the area’s finest vintners, including Cakebread Cellars, Counter Punch Wines, Crane Family, Dry Creek Vineyards, Fontanella, Reid Family Vineyards, Rowland Tebb, Silver Oak, Titus and ZD Wines, to name a few. Local restaurants and caterers will be providing bites, as well.

Reid Family Vineyards, 1020 Borrette Lane in Napa. Tickets are $75 at crushms2015.eventbrite.com or $95 at the door. Proceeds will benefit Stanford University MS research.
