A big thank you to all of the participants, sponsors, donors, volunteers and staff who made the October 26, 2013 MS Connections Conference a huge success!
Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming 2014 MS Connections Conference.
The MS Connections Conference is a one day event for persons affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) to come together, become better educated on a variety of topics that affect them in their daily lives, and to meet and listen to speakers who may change the way that we all look at MS. The first MS Connections Conference was held in 2004, and has been an important initiative that contributes to fulfilling one half of our mission – to enhance the quality of life for those affected by MS.
In addition to great presentations, the event also features an Ask the Expert panel. The Ask the Expert panel will present Conference participants with the opportunity to meet one-on-one with professionals from a variety of backgrounds and expertise. The panel will be organized so that you can sign up for 20 min. appointment times with an expert of your choice and ask questions, and gather information relating to their area of practice. Experts are being invited from Health Care, Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Exercise, Nutrition, and Financial fields.
The conference gives us the opportunity to connect with others who have a similar interest in learning more about MS. Past attendees have reported not feeling so alone by coming to the conference, taking home useful & practical information from the sessions, and leaving with a sense of hope.
