Spreading Awareness and Hope for MS

Today is World MS Day, a day intended to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis and to create a stronger network among the more than 2,000,000 patients around the world who live with this debilitating disease.

To help with the goal of raising awareness, PhRMA produced a brief, informative video featuring a multiple sclerosis expert, Sanofi's Associate Vice President and Head of the Multiple Sclerosis Distinct Project Unit Anita Burrell.

The video provides a comprehensive look at the disease as well as some positive insights about the work being done. As Burrell straightforwardly says to patients: "Your disease is important." After all, 38 potential new medicines are currently in development to treat MS.
