Research update – “Progress & Promise” in North Charleston

Dr. Mitzi Williams | Atlanta MS Center

The National MS Society will host an event called “Progress and Promise” that will provide an update on the latest progress in MS research. The event will take place on Saturday, Jan. 23 beginning at 10 a.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in North Charleston. The guest speaker for the event will be Dr. Mitzi Williams, a neurologist at the MS Center in Atlanta, GA. Pre-registration for the event is required.

Progress of Multiple Sclerosis Research

When Sylvia Lawry started the MS movement in 1946 with the founding of the National MS Society, research into multiple sclerosis was almost non-existent. Information on the disease was minimal, and the disease took years to diagnose. There were no therapies that proved to slow down the progression of MS. Decades of research into multiple sclerosis and the basic knowledge of the immune and nervous systems have provided information to support the foundation for progress.

Dr. Williams received her BS degree from Emory University in neuroscience and behavioral biology. She earned her MD from Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Williams completed her internship and a residency in neurology at the Medical College of Georgia and her fellowship at the Augusta Multiple Sclerosis Center. She is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and also holds memberships in the National MS Society, the American Academy in Neurology, the Christian Medical and Dental Association, and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers. As Medical Director at the Augusta MS Center, she has served a population of over 1,400 people in Georgia and South Carolina. She has spoken both nationally and abroad in conjunction with the Accreditation Council for Medical Education (ACCME) and other organizations.

Pre-registration for this event is required. Please call 1-800-344-4867, option 1 or click here.

Registration deadline is Jan. 20. Hilton Garden Inn – North Charleston is located at 5265 International Boulevard North Charleston, SC 29418.

About Multiple Sclerosis

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. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
