The Women Against MS (WAMS) Luncheon, one of the National MS Society's premier fundraising campaigns, is an empowering way for women to unite with other women in the movement to create a world free of MS.


While much remains unknown about MS, researchers know that multiple sclerosis affects women in far greater numbers than men. In fact, MS is at least two to three times more common in women than in men. Across the nation, women from all walks of life are joining together through the WAMS initiative. WAMS serves to educate women about MS and to broaden their knowledge about the work and mission of the National MS Society. Funds raised through this annual luncheon and auction are dedicated to services and programs for local people living with MS, in addition to research into the cause, cure and treatment of the disease.

WAMS 2016: Honoring JoAnne A. Epps

The National MS Society will honor JoAnne A. Epps with the Woman of Spirit Award at the 2016 Women Against MS Luncheon on Thursday, May 26.

As Dean of Temple Law School, a position she has held since 2008, Epps has been an outspoken advocate for legal education that emphasizes institutional responsiveness over a one-size-fits-all curricular model. 

Dean Epps’ professional leadership and influence extend far beyond Temple Law School. Long a champion for women and minorities within the profession, she has been awarded the 2014 Justice Sonia Sotomayor Diversity Award by the Philadelphia Bar Association and is a three-time honoree by Lawyers of Color Magazine as one of the 100 most influential black lawyers in the country.
