The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) is excited to announce that we have received two awards from the APEX 2017 Awards for Publication Excellence!

The 29th Annual APEX Awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content, and the success of the entry – in the opinion of the judges – in achieving overall communications effectiveness and excellence. This year, entries were very competitive; APEX received a total of 1,361 entries that were evaluated and distributed under a variety of categories.

MSAA was presented with the APEX Award for Feature Writing Excellence for the cover story, “Making the Most of Our Relationships” featured in the Winter/Spring 2016 edition of The Motivator. This cover story was written by MSAA’s Senior Writer and Creative Director Susan Courtney. “Making the Most of Our Relationships” addresses interactions between family members, friends, employers, and coworkers, along with explaining how a diagnosis of MS can impact how people communicate and care for one another.
