The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC), the leading organization for healthcare professionals involved in multiple sclerosis (MS) care, has announced its 2nd Annual More About MS. This unique one-day patient educational forum is specifically designed for those wanting to increase their knowledge of MS and will take place Saturday, May 30, 2020 as a virtual forum.
The theme for this year’s More About MS program is “Coming of Age with Multiple Sclerosis.” This online conference will feature top neurologists, researchers and specialists involved in MS care as well as industry supporters presenting products, services and wellness solutions for optimum quality of life.
More About MS from 12 Noon — 3:00 pm ET, on May 30th will include opening remarks and a presentation on “Aging and MS” by the Program Chair, Randall T. Schapiro, MD, FAAN.

This free program will also feature a patient video highlighting their perspective of coming of age with MS as well as interactive opportunities to engage patients, caregivers and the program presenters including question and answer sessions and live polling questions.
“In partnership with Catamount Medical Education we are excited to be able to offer this virtual patient program since we can not meet face-to-face in Orlando as originally planned. More About MS will now be accessible to a wider audience and from the comfort of their homes,” said June Halper, CEO, CMSC.
