Movement Disorder Society (MDS) Criteria for the Diagnosis of MSA

10-11 am ET
Professor Gregor Wenning, Medical University Innsbruck, Austria
Professor Iva Stankovic, University of Belgrade, Serbia
Last month, ERN-RND featured Professors Gregor Wenning and Iva Stankovic in a webinar on “MDS Criteria for Diagnosis of MSA.” This webinar was geared toward medical and research professionals initially, but this month, they are presenting the information again in a more accessible way to patients and family members to understand. The presentation will contain two parts: 1. A critique of the second consensus criteria for diagnosis of MSA to be presented by Iva Stankovic and 2. The MDS criteria for the diagnosis of MSA to be presented by Gregor Wenning.
Due to the use of sensitive patient information during the webinar, a recording is not available.
Live Q&A on Multiple System Atrophy
Thursday, March 24
3-4 pm ET
Facilitator: Dr. Vikram Khurana, Harvard Medical School
If you’re not a medical professional, it can be difficult to understand MSA and related research. Now’s your chance to ask a medical professional your questions and get clarification on any concepts that you may not understand. There will be time to ask questions during the session, but we recommend you submit your questions beforehand.
