Pedal With Mettle: Dr. Shefner Rides Coast to Coast For MS
On May 28, Jeremy Shefner, MD, PhD, Chair of Neurology at Barrow Neurological Institute, set out on a 4,295-mile bike ride to raise funds for Barrow’s multiple sclerosis program. He will cross 15 states over 69 days as he rides from Maine to Washington through Bike the US for MS. Follow along on his journey and support his ride for MS.
At Barrow Neurological Institute, we take care of patients with a wide spectrum of neurological problems, and the Multiple Sclerosis Program is one of our core services. Our team provides care for MS patients using a variety of treatments, rehabilitation specialists, neuropsychologists, social workers and researchers to take the best possible care of our MS patients now, and to find better treatments for future.
Although MS is not at the center of Dr. Shefner’s clinical practice, he’s treated many MS patients, and is acutely conscious of the challenges this diagnosis creates for both patients and caregivers.
