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:

  • Understanding MS and Aging: Find answers to your questions about disease progression, planning for the future, and symptoms that you’re not sure are due to aging or MS
  • Cognition: Get to know what’s going on with your mind
  • Managing Mobility Challenges 
  • Strategies for Healthy Eating

You will learn:

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