Join us on Saturday, May 2nd for "Mind, Body & Spirit," the 4th Annual Conference for African-Americans and their families living with MS.  This conference will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 5265 International Blvd, North Charleston, SC.  

The conference begins at 9:30 a.m. with registration and vendors.  The program starts promptly at 10 a.m. with the general session.  This includes presentations on nutrition by Zelda Council, MS, RD, LN from the VA Medical Center and on improving communication with Dr. Kenneth Phelps from USC School of Medicine.  Lunch will follow the general session.  After lunch, there will be break-out sessions for people living with MS and for carepartners.  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.  

The Hilton Garden Inn has a block of rooms available for our conference attendees at the reduced rate of $139/night (plus tax), if you wish to spend the night.  This block of rooms will be held only until April 1, 2015.  You are responsible for the cost of your own room if you make reservations.  Please call the hotel at (919) 677-1840 and mention the National MS Society African-American Conference rate.
