Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month 2019

MS Awareness Month: March 2019

March marks MS Awareness month where, for an entire month, we intentionally focus on building greater awareness about multiple sclerosis and the MS community on the world stage. There are so many that have "heard" of MS but don't really know what it is, let alone what's it like for those who are living with it every day. It's so important to spread awareness about what living with multiple sclerosis is really like in order to create a deeper understanding and continue to drive research and technology to help those fighting this disease.

Whether you're tackling the physical, emotional, or mental symptoms of multiple sclerosis, you are not alone. Keep reading to discover special awareness month opportunities and ways to connect:
