Next TAKE CHARGE Program: Newly Diagnosed

Whether you are newly diagnosed, or even in the first 5 to 10 years of life with MS, there are likely new challenges you continue to face. You don’t need to navigate your “new normal” alone. Join this TAKE CHARGE for help finding your way through this uncharted territory.

The TAKE CHARGE Program is a 2-day program for people newly diagnosed with MS and their care partners to connect, receive coaching, and work together to find solutions to build a brighter future.

Why Attend

At this program, you’ll be empowered to take action for your wellness, manage your symptoms, and find your own way to thrive.

Topics covered will include:

  • Coping and Resilience
  • Activities of Daily Living
  • Headstarting Your Baseline

You will learn about:

  • SMART goals: You’ll map out a personal plan for success with help from MS care professionals
  • Conversation starters: Tools to talk to your healthcare team, loved ones, and support partner
  • Lasting connections: The friendships made in these two days can last a lifetime
  • and so much more!

We highly encourage your care partner (spouse, significant other, family member, friend) to attend with you. Often care partners discover a new sense of understanding and connection that they can’t find anywhere else.
