Thinking About Benefits & Risks
People with MS now have more tools available to them than ever before, including disease-modifying treatments, symptom-management strategies and lifestyle-related options that can improve quality of life.
To learn more about these tools and options, please join us. This program focuses on the factors that influence people with MS, as well as their physicians and family members, as they consider their treatment and lifestyle options. In the video portion of the program, you will hear from clinicians at the forefront of MS research and treatment discussing the issues that must be considered when looking at treatment and lifestyle decisions.
Presenters on the video include Deborah Miller, PhD, LISW from the Mellen Center for MS at the Cleveland Clinic; Dr. Amit Bar-Or, associate professor of neurology at McGill University and scientific director of the Clinical Research Unit at the Montreal Neurological Institute; Dr. Robert Fox, staff neurologist and medical director at the Mellen Center for MS at the Cleveland Clinic; and Marie Namey, APRN, also at the Mellen Center at the Cleveland Clinic.
Dr. John Steel from Atlantic Neurology will facilitate a live Q and A after the DVD portion. Dr. Steel is a Board Certified adult neurologist. He completed medical school at UNC-Chapel Hill in 1977 and completed a four-year neurology residency at The University of California, San Francisco, in 1981. He served active duty with the USAF at Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio until 1985 when he moved to eastern North Carolina. He practiced in Greenville with East Carolina Neurology and the ECU School of Medicine where he was a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine (Neurology) for 15 years until moving to this area. Dr. Steel has been in the New Bern area since 2003. He is certified in CT imaging of the brain and Neurovascular Ultrasound by the American Society of Neuroimaging
