MyHealthTeams and EMD Serono, through their MS-LINK initiative, launch the Treatment and Adherence Resource Center within MyMSTeam, the social network for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Resource Center is designed to help diagnosed patients and their families understand the importance of starting treatment and provides actionable tips for staying on disease-modifying therapies (DMTs), a media release from MyHealthTeams explains.

“Now, perhaps more than ever, the MS community is faced with challenges they never may have anticipated and have questions about how to navigate treating their disease during these difficult times. Our MS-LINK initiative remains committed to the MS community by supporting programs like the Treatment and Adherence Resource Center, which offers quick access to trusted information that can help them effectively discuss issues and make decisions with their healthcare provider.”

— Terrie Livingston, Head of Patient and Payor Solutions at EMD Serono

“Even under normal circumstances it can be hard for people with MS to stay on their medication. The coronavirus pandemic only heightens the need for us to do everything we can to go directly to patients with the information they need to advocate for themselves and best manage their MS.”

— Eric Peacock, cofounder and CEO of MyHealthTeams
