In this week’s episode, runner Cheryl Hile joins Brain & Life Podcast co-host Dr. Daniel Correa to discuss her experience running over 60 marathons across all seven continents after her diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). She shares why running speaks to her, how an orthotic helps her stay on track, and what’s next in her journey. Then Dr. Correa is joined by Dr. Lauren Gluck, Director of the Montefiore Multiple Sclerosis Center and Assistant Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She explains what MS is, outlines treatment options, and delves in to how vital and adaptable exercise can be for patients.
