Conference attendees

— Local women, Teva Advocate Paulette Wood, left, and Earldine Robinson, attended the 2012 Advocate Forum for Teva Neuroscience in San Diego, Calif.

The forum was held at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel in August.

They heard from speaker Dr. Jack Llewelln Ph.D., author of “Get the Mud out of the Water,” on how to make life-changing decisions, and attended break-out sessions on the importance of nutrition and exercise to manage multiple sclerosis.

The last night after dinner, it was closed with a surprise concert by Clay Walker and his band.

He is also stricken with MS. He had encouraging words that there is hope for patients with multiple sclerosis. He is back on stage now with a rigorous schedule, and a few years ago, he couldn’t hold the pick for his guitar. With good nutrition, exercise and the right medication, he now has a normal life.
