Local researcher highlight: Joseph Harding, PhD
Who are our local researchers and what exactly are they doing to help create a world free of MS? Meet Joseph Harding, PhD. He's already developed a neurodegenerative drug to treat Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Now, he'd like to find out if the same drug could be used to treat Progressive MS.
Have you heard? The Inaugural Run MS Seattle 5K will kick off Walk MS Seattle this year! All runners in the community, regardless of physical level or ability, are welcome to sign up.
Help the MS movement just by doing what you love – create a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) fundraiser! Learn from one of our success stories: Keith Padien raced against 228 participants in Sharkfest, a 1.6-mile swim under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and raised more than $32,000.
