As a community, Black people with MS can find unique support, communication, and ideas together.
About the program
We welcome members of the Black MS community to join quarterly meetups, where you can find a positive and safe space to connect with other individuals on similar journeys with MS.
These meetups have been specially requested by African American and Black participants in our other Can Do MS Programs. We hope you find the same encouraging, optimistic, and dependable forum for learning and connection here—now, with a group that looks like you.
