In recognition of Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month, Acorda Therapeutics Inc announces the launch of its Alexa skill, MS Awareness Facts, which works with Amazon Alexa.

The purpose of MS Awareness Facts is to educate users more about multiple sclerosis and to help them find helpful information on MS and its symptoms. When users request “Alexa, start MS Awareness,” the skill answers with an MS Awareness Fact.

“We’re proud to be at the forefront of using this new technology to connect with patients,” says Michael Russo, executive director, Corporate Digital Strategy & Innovation, in a media release from Ardsley, NY-based Acorda Therapeutics Inc. “Education is an important component of each person’s fight against multiple sclerosis.”
