  4. IN PERSON Clinical Trials

    Adherence Research Study

    Do you have relapsing-remitting MS? Do you choose not to take medication to prevent flare-ups? If so, researchers at UMKC and KUMC are looking for you! You are NOT required to take disease modifying treatments to be part of this study. We are interested to learn your reactions to the telephone counseling you will receive. It is hoped that this research will help us improve MS care and better understand why some choose not to take medication.

  5. ONLINE Family and Relationships

    Family Matters

    MS happens to families, not just to individuals. You probably have many questions about MS – what will happen to my family member with MS, how can we plan, how do we manage the unpredictability of the disease? The National MS Society is here to help you navigate the challenges of living MS with a personalized response to your unique needs.
