MS month agenda, frustrating

The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) is partnering with a number of organizations during Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month in March to provide education, research and services to the MS community.

CMSC is a non-profit organization that provides educational programs and resources to MS professionals, healthcare providers, researchers and the MS community in general.

“CMSC is proud to support MS Awareness Month and year-round provide tools and resources to the entire team involved in MS care” to generate “positive outcomes for those affected by this complex disease,” June Halper, the chief executive officer of CMSC, said in a press release.

Among the resources CMSC provides are:

The CMSC will also hold its 32nd CMSC Annual Meeting from May 31 to June 2 this year at the Music City Center in Nashville.

The event targets researchers and healthcare professionals working in the field of MS. The program includes lectures, workshops, symposiums, courses, roundtables, panel discussions, posters and presentations that insure a cross-disciplinary curriculum that fits participants’ multidisciplinary backgrounds.

This year the event will cover 11 topics, including advocacy, comprehensive care, nursing, rehabilitation, skills development and wellness. Also included is a meeting about MS registries around the world aimed at beginning a broad collaboration that can streamline and do a better job of disseminating important data and statistics on MS.
