Internships

Why not invest in a cause? Multiple sclerosis stops people from moving. We exist to make sure it doesn’t. The National MS Society helps people with multiple sclerosis live their best lives as we work to stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever. We are people who want to do something about MS NOW, and are dedicated to achieving a world free of MS.
