Who is Lisa?
Lisa Emrich was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2005 and RA in 2007. Having two chronic illnesses is a challenge, “it’s difficult to know which disease is causing the symptoms,” she says. Although her MS limits treatment options for RA, she has found a medication that works for both. Lisa is a musician, teacher and advocate. She lives in Falls Church, VA with her husband Rob and their three cats.
