National Multiple Sclerosis Society Teams Up with “RealTalk MS” Podcast with Jon Strum
November 18, 2019
Partnership will help bring MS news and information to a larger audience
The National MS Society
is excited to announce it is teaming up with the popular podcast “RealTalk MS” hosted by Jon Strum. The weekly podcast explores information about issues that matter to the MS community including the latest MS research, healthcare information and legislative policy issues. The podcast also profiles people working to make life better for people with MS.
The Society chose to team up with Strum because of his passion for the MS movement and his commitment to accurate and engaging content.
“This is a great fit for us,” said Ron Zwerin, executive vice president of marketing and brand at the National MS Society. “The Society and “RealTalk MS” share common goals; we inform people affected by MS, enable them to live their best lives, and we educate and engage influencers across a wide spectrum that includes policy makers, providers, and fundraisers.”
Strum has been actively involved in the MS community since his wife Jeanne was diagnosed with MS in 1997. Unfortunately, her symptoms progressed quickly, and within just a few short years, Jeanne had become a quadriplegic. Jon’s love for his wife and his determination to do something to help her and others living with this disease spurred him to start the podcast in 2017.
“When Jeanne was diagnosed, the National MS Society was the first place we turned to for information,” said Strum. “Partnering with the Society will help extend the reach of “RealTalk MS” and introduce many, many more families to it. And as the Society is the largest private funder of MS research in the world, who better to partner with so that “RealTalk MS” is in a position to share all of the latest MS research news and talk with the people making that news?”
“RealTalk MS” releases a new episode every Tuesday for download on its website
. It’s also available on most podcast platforms including Apple
The National MS Society, founded in 1946, funds cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, and provides programs and services to help people affected by MS live their best lives.
