Importance of Minorities in Research

MS affects African Americans and Hispanics in different ways compared with other ethnic groups. Symptoms may differ, the disease may progress faster, and treatments may have different effects. African Americans and Hispanic/Latinos are underrepresented in research studies. That makes it difficult to tell which treatments are best for them, or how to reduce the risk of MS in these groups. You can make a difference!

Talk to your health care provider about participating in a clinical trial or other types of research. Join iConquerMS.org, a research network open to all people with MS, and learn about other research studies at www.acceleratedcure.org/MSResearch. Learn why participation in research is important, and find out how you can help educate others at acceleratedcure.org/MinorityNetwork.
