Workshop for Individuals Newly Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis to Take Place in Warrenville
Sep 3, 2015 5:10 PM -
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.
