We always send our monthly newsletter out the first Sunday of the month—but as I write this, it is hard for me to believe it is already March, the month that spring makes an “official debut!”
First, I would like to thank the many of you who joined us for the most recent installment of our Mini Symposium Series this past week. Presented by the Wolfe Brain Health Initiative, and in partnership with the U-M Frances and Kenneth Eisenberg and Family Depression Center and the Department of Psychiatry, “Protecting Your Brain from Stress” was our most successful symposium to date.
For those who couldn’t attend, or would like a refresher, I’ve included five key takeaways, the full recording, and supplemental information from our speakers. Just scroll further down.
This past month, we contributed to important ADA clinical guidelines on neuropathy, which were recently published. I presented our research at the American Society for Experimental Neurotherapeutics (ASENT) on the effect of environmental factors on ALS onset and progression, and Michigan Medicine magazine featured our “moonshot” for ALS. I also spoke to Channel 4 WDIV (NBC news in Detroit), about the increased risk of ALS among military veterans.
And please “read on” for other February highlights.
As always, please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance to you, your family, or friends—as my scientists and I welcome both spring and our new research endeavors.
