ARMS Advocates for UB Neurology Research in MS

At an event held on July 16, 2014, Advancing Research in MS (ARMS), an advocacy group formed in March 2013, pledged to raise $75,000 for Dept. of Neurology investigations into the impact of aging on patients with multiple sclerosis.  The group has already raised funding for a data automation project directed by Ralph Benedict, PhD, Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry.  During the ceremony, Dr. Benedict described how the data automation has contributed to published manuscripts describing the employment challenges encountered by patients living with MS.  Bianca Weinstock-Guttman, MD, Professor of Neurology, outlined plans for the aging in MS studies.

ARMS board members include Rita Andolina, Elizabeth Jacobs, Kristy Mazurek, Jane Montgomery, Penny Pennington, KC Sacca, Linda Safran, and Pamela Jacobs Vogt.  In the photograph, ARMS board members are pictured with Drs. Benedict and Weinstock-Guttman.
