Each week more than 200 people in the United States are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. They join more than 1 million other Americans who have contracted the disease. If you know someone with MS, you may have heard their stories of searching for a cure or looking for a treatment that will help relieve their symptoms.

On this edition of UWM Today, we talk with a UWM researcher who’s exploring the role that light therapy may have in helping MS victims. Jeri-Anne Lyons is a professor of biomedical sciences and the associate dean of UWM’s College of Health Sciences.
