"You Are Not Alone - The Power of Connections"
Join us on Saturday, March 21 for "You Are Not Alone - The Power of Connections," the 14th Annual Conference for African-Americans and their families living with MS. This conference will be held at The Embassy Suites in Cary from 3 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
The conference begins at 3 p.m. with time to visit vendors. The general session starts at 4 p.m., which includes a panel presentation on exercise, nutrition, Social Security Disability and clinical trials. You'll get a chance to hear from experts on the topic and ask your questions. Following the general session, we will go into break-out sessions for people with MS and for family/friends. These sessions will provide an opportunity to meet others, gain that much needed emotional support and learn just how valuable connections are in meeting the challenges of living with MS. Dinner and dancing will follow at 7 p.m.
