Spectrum News reported on underserved patients with multiple sclerosis, especially African Americans, who have been found to have more disabling illness than whites with the disease. The story focused on an initiative of UBMD Neurology that is focused on providing better and earlier care to these patients through the education of providers. The story quoted Channa Kolb, MD, assistant professor of neurology in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, who said, “We’re going to educate primary care providers, we’re going to educate medical students, we’re going to educate medical residents all about neurodisparities and implicit and how to fight against this for all patients especially African Americans who have been so neglected.”
