On the first episode of the podcast we speak with actor, dancer, and professional choreographer Courtney Platt, who shares her love of movement and how she thrives despite a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS). Courtney describes how she was diagnosed, her experience with disease-modifying drugs, and the challenges of starting a family while managing a neurologic condition. In their conversation, Courtney also highlights her work with MS in Harmony, a platform that allows people with MS and caregivers to access music therapy online. Dr. Correa is then joined by Dr. Riley Bove, associate professor of neurology at the University of California, San Francisco, and neurologist at UCSF Multiple Sclerosis Center, who educates listeners about the condition and shares important information about in vitro fertilization (IVF) and pregnancy with MS.
