Local activities to spread the MS brain health message 

It is always exciting to hear how you have been disseminating the MS brain health message locally. Here are some notable updates.
  • Supporters in Australia have written an article promoting our primary care provider guide, a two-page document that highlights the symptoms of MS and the need to diagnose early to maximize brain health. Their article has recently been published in two local Australian Medical Association magazines: VicDoc and Doctor Q. It is also available on the MS Australia website.
  • In London, UK, one of our brain health champions gave a successful presentation about how primary care could help in the management of MS. Over 100 nurses attended the event, many of whom took away our nursing resource.
  • MS neurologist and MS Brain Health Steering Committee member Jeremy Hobart presented about brain health at an MS event in Kiev, Ukraine. Translations of MS Brain Health resources into Ukrainian are underway. Watch this space for news of their publication on our website!  
Thank you to all our supporters for continuing to share information about brain health. Are you planning an MS event or presenting at a local meeting? If so, download our resources to distribute at the event.

Please do keep us updated on all your brain health activities – we would love to find out what you have been up to!
