The goal of Kids Get MS Too is to provide an opportunity for children and adolescents with MS, and their families, to meet others in similar situations, and to talk with the team of health professionals from the Partners Pediatric MS Center about the care of children and teens with MS.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has selected the Partners Pediatric MS Center at MassGeneral Hospital for Children as one of six Pediatric MS Centers of Excellence in the country. The goals of the centers are:
To provide optimal medical and psychosocial care and support to children and their families;
To educate the medical community about pediatric MS;
To develop a nationwide shared network of knowledge, and build a framework for research into this patient population.
