WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INVOLVED IN MS RESEARCH?
During my undergraduate degree in a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics, there was an opportunity to work on a MS project that looked at the associations between dietary intake and magnetic resonance imaging outcomes. This was actually the first time that I had the opportunity to really understand what MS is and what this means to people living with the disease. During this period of research, I noticed that diet was often overlooked, and lifestyle management rarely received the attention it deserved. With my background in dietetics, I felt a great opportunity to change this.
