Workshop for Individuals Newly Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis to Take Place in Warrenville, Sept. 22 & 29

Two-part program, presented by the National MS Society, informs and prepares individuals recently diagnosed with MS for the future.

Success with MS, a free, two-part program for those newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, takes place on two consecutive Tuesdays, Sept. 22 and 29, from 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., at Edward Neuroscience Institute, 3S517 Winfield Road, Suite A, in Warrenville, Ill. The two-part program, presented by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater Illinois Chapter, informs and prepares individuals recently diagnosed with MS for the future. If you have been diagnosed with MS in the last two years, Success with MS will equip you with the tools you need to combat the challenges of living with MS. Participants are expected to attend both sessions.

Through Success with MS, attendees will learn about living with MS from experienced health professionals. The first session, presented by a local neurologist, will cover a variety of topics, including what MS is, MS treatment options and MS healthcare providers. In the second session, a social worker or psychologist will discuss implications of living with MS, including sensitive conversations with family, friends and employers as well as financial considerations for the future.

Reservations can be made online at MSillinois.org or by calling 1-800-344-4867. Registration is required; no walk-ins allowed. For questions or more information about Success with MS, contact Nicole Sammartino, client services manager at the Greater Illinois Chapter, at 312-423-1127 or nicole.sammartino@nmss.org.

Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. MS affects more than 20,000 people in Illinois and 2.3 million worldwide.

The Greater Illinois Chapter mobilizes people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. The chapter envisions a world free of MS and moves toward that end by driving change through advocacy, facilitating education, collaborating with others and by providing helpful programs and services.
