Annual Dialogue

The Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation’s Annual Dialogue is a moderated panel discussion of state and national leaders in prevention and treatment. Every year you are invited to join us to learn more about innovative solutions and strategies that can improve healthcare outcomes for Wisconsin communities. The 2014 Dialogue focused on Multiple Sclerosis.

 

Multiple Sclerosis: Wisconsin Perspective

 
An informative video created in collaboration with the Wisconsin Well Woman Program on the basic characteristics of MS research, and therapy. Featuring two of our 2014 Dialogue Panelists, Dr. Colleen Hayes and Dr. Christopher Luzzio.

 

2014 Dialogue: Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a complex disease with a complex diagnosis. While there are many theories about the cause of MS, the main cause is still unknown. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend this event  and take part in the conversation about this debilitating health issue. With the help of our panelists and challenging questions from the audience, we were able to learn more about advancements in diagnosis and treatment as well as the impact MS has on Wisconsin families.

The speaker presentations from the Dialogue are available below and a white paper will be released sometime early this winter.
