This year’s ECTRIMS congress will be held September 14-17 in London. Directly following the congress, the UK’s MS Society will host their own event – MS Life at the ExCel.

ECTRIMS15 was held in Barcelona. One presentation was about the important role vitamin D plays in MS inflammation. Read more about it.

Billed as the biggest MS lifestyle event in the world, MS Life will feature a range of discussions and workshops covering everyday life situations regarding MS symptoms, family life, mental health, claiming benefits, and even sex.

Plenty of activities for children promise a great family friendly event worth spending a few more days in London. Expect a spa, cooking lessons, and wheelchair dancing!

Multiple Sclerosis News Today will offer daily follow-up coverage of the 2016 annual European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) congress in London.
