A NEWsletter for families affected by MS and those who support them.

Digesting Science has sent out the first monthly email newsletter to families affected by MS and those who support them. I'd love to know what you think of our first offering, sent out yesterday. 

We want to update you on project news and tell you about Digesting Science as the kits travel the country (and the world!). We have top tips for families living with MS, written by families living with MS. And we have research news in Plain English.

Reading this blog, I see a lot of comments that suggest most of you are au fait with scientific language and medical jargon. But for those who aren't, reading up about MS research can be confusing and even overwhelming. We really think research news should be accessible for EVERYONE who wants to know more about their condition. And we want to empower people to see beyond the often (shamefully) misleading headlines some media outlets propagate in response to big announcements in the research world. We hope that the Digesting Science newsletter will provide research news that doesn't oversimplify the message, but doesn't obfuscate it with technical words either.

If you'd like to subscribe to the new email, then you can do so here.

And don't forget to let me know what you think of this one!

  1. This is great, & the Bart's ms blog is great bas well but I agree it's not very accessible to sufferers with cognitive issues. It often sounds like people discussing how clever they are. Perhaps a brief laypersons summary could be included for people who don't want to be doctors but are interested in the bottom line.

    1. No offence to MD at all, he's a clever man, but when he's in a rush and a tizzy, anyone can start thinking they must have cognitive issues, trying to read what he's written! ;)
