World MS Day


Since 2009 the last Wednesday in May marks World MS Day, raising awareness and facilitating support among MS organisations around the Globe. The Day is coordinated by the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF). This year's theme is #Life with MS.

A number of events across the Globe mark the day.  I will be in Belém near Lisbon at an event organised by the British Medical Journal to discuss MS brain health matters, with a focus on treatment at more advanced disease stages. Please note the MSIF has recently adopted *access to disease modifying treatments* among their five key strategic aims

With your support BartsMS will hopefully be able to make a difference in terms of access too, so please remember to give to our new charity if you can.

I will post my slides after the event, however if you're keen you can register for live streaming (unless you happen to be in Lisbon today in which case you're welcome to join the action in person!).
