ADEM ACADEMY

ADEM Academy is a collaborative, multi-part education podcast series designed to educate, and create awareness regarding acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, or ADEM. Through this podcast series, we hope to support families, children, and clinicians during and through a diagnosis. Ultimately, our hope is to ensure an accurate and timely diagnosis of those with encephalopathy (abnormal functioning of the brain). Prompt diagnosis and treatment of ADEM may reduce or prevent the worsening of symptoms, leading to better outcomes.

Other Collaborative Podcasts

Some of our podcasts have been created in collaboration with our partner the Siegel Rare Neuroimmune Association and are part of their “Ask the Expert Podcast Series.” We are proud to share a collection of podcasts on MOG-AD here with their permission.
