World MS Day 2014 - I am advocating for MS patients to have access to medical professionals even when they live in remote communities such as mine, Thorne Bay, Alaska. With 21st century technologies access should be available without having to travel great distances. Government entities with high speed Internet could provide access to the Internet after hours for video conferencing. Medical professionals could hold appointments by phone or video conferencing. Insurance companies could cover phone and video conferencing appointments. I challenge the government, medical professionals and insurance industry to give patients access to medical professionals in isolated communities.
