One of the most important questions that emerged was about the connection between doctors and pharma.  There is a large population of people with MS who feel wary of big pharma.  The question is:  Do doctors go so far as to make a profit when they write you a prescription for a drug created by pharma?

MyCounterpane Founder Kate Milliken sat down with Dr. Timothy Coetzee, PhD, the Chief Advocacy, Services & Research Officer for The National MS Society to answer questions submitted by people online who are living with MS.

Watch the video to see what Dr. Coetzee has to say about between doctors, pharma and profit and how you can empower yourself with the truth.
