MINNEAPOLIS Dr. Dale D. Edberg of Rochester, Minn., was recently elected to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Minnesota Chapter Board of Trustees.
After Edberg was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1994, he wanted to help others living with the disease. Edberg pursued a career in the field of MS research and now works as a research fellow in the Department of Neuroimmunology at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, Minn.
Since 2005, Edberg has volunteered at the Walk MS: Christopher & Banks Rochester Walk and has presented information about MS research to people affected by MS at National MS Society programs, self-help group meetings and state and national conventions. Edberg also served on the National MS Society, Minnesota Chapter Research Committee.
“Our board members are passionate about addressing the challenges of people affected by multiple sclerosis and moving closer to a world free of MS,” said Maureen Reeder, president of the National MS Society, Minnesota Chapter. “We are so pleased Dr. Dale Edberg has accepted the important role of serving on the Minnesota Chapter’s board of trustees.”
Edberg received a Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry and Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry and psychology at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. He earned his doctorate in biochemistry at the University of Washington in Pullman, Wash.
