On long-term disability leave, 54-year-old flight attendant Janet Uribe jokingly says she now volunteers as a ‘brain model’ at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health, where she regularly takes part in clinical trials and studies. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) 25 years ago, Uribe enjoys participating in research. “As a patient, who has lived with a chronic illness for so many years, it’s a great feeling to be able to contribute to this type of research. What they see in my brain will help others. It’s a privilege.”
