Shift.ms train MSers to become citizen journalists, and match them with clinical, academic and industry experts.
These MS Reporters conduct interviews as representatives of their community filming their meetings to build a video library of expert knowledge that is accessible to the wider community.
MS Reporters is supported by a Society Award from the Wellcome Trust.
Why do we do this?
Empowering the patient community creates dialogue which allows opportunities for them to influence the research agenda.
Currently most engagement with patient communities is top-down. Seeing MSers from their own community directly talking with leading Experts breaks down the barriers to engagement for the community.
