Having a successful relationship is hard work even in the best of times. MS can make it even more challenging. The National MS Society is proud to offer this program specifically designed to help couples negotiate and manage the uncertainty of living with multiple sclerosis. Wellness-focused behaviors have been found to be effective in promoting overall health. Join us for a relaxing weekend and work toward a more wellness-focused lifestyle at the Radisson Hotel in exciting Branson, MO.

WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
“If I would have known this 20 years ago, I would have been a better partner and dealt with this better.”
“I found this weekend helpful for me dealing with my wife's MS. I like the analogy that MS is a visitor to our home and we have to deal with it as a family.”
This type of program traditionally fills up within hours of registration opening.
Registration is limited to those who did not attend an NMSS Couple’s Retreat in 2013 or 2014.
