Veterans Affairs MS Study


Do you or someone you care about have symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

Some MS symptoms are:

  • Difficulty in walking
  • Loss of balance or muscle coordination
  • Numbness / Tingling
  • Stiffness
  • Fatigue

Researchers at Veterans Affairs Maryland Health Care System in Baltimore invite you to participate in a research study that compares two different group education programs for people with MS. The purpose is to see which program is better at helping improve quality of life and MS symptoms. Both programs are from the National MS Society.

If you qualify, participation includes 10 study visits over an 11 month period:

  • 1 baseline visit
  • 6 two-hour group class sessions
  • 3 data collection visits

You will be compensated for your time and travel. If you are travelling within a 30-mile radius, you will be compensated up to $300. If you are travelling outside a 30-mile radius, you will be compensated up to $550.
