Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month 2018

March is MS Awareness Month

March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month, and MSAA is proud to support this national campaign with educational activities and events throughout the country. MSAA has focused 2018’s awareness campaign on Understanding MS Progression, with specific topics addressing MS relapse management, brain preservation and cognition in MS, and healthy living with primary-progressive MS (PPMS).

Please join us in the following MS Awareness activities scheduled during March:

MS Relapse Management

The Importance of Brain Preservation and Cognition in MS

  • Attend a free in-person educational program to learn more about this important topic. Please see our Calendar of Events page for more details. (These specific programs have been completed in March 2018.)
  • Take our MS and the Brain Survey, and look out for the results which will be presented the week of March 19th. (Please note that the survey is now closed.)
  • MSAA and Rohit Bakshi, MD, FAAN held a live “Ask Me Anything” event on MSAA’s Facebook page dedicated to this key issue on Monday, March 19, 2018 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm Eastern.
