“The idea of an MS center is to improve the way that patients are diagnosed, treated, and also that you’re empowered to actually take care of yourself”

—Dr. Jaime Imitola, director, UConn Health Multiple Sclerosis Center

Multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disorder that attacks the central nervous system, can strike in the 20s and 30s and send patients down a path toward disability. But the right care from the right people can make a difference in how fast or how far down that path a patient may go, or even set an entirely different path.

Dr. Jaime Imitola, director of UConn Health’s Division of Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology, and Karen Nelson, clinical patient navigator in neurology, join the UConn Health Pulse podcast to explain how they and their colleagues in the MS Center at UConn Health work together to change the trajectory of their patients’ disease.
