Join us on Thursday, December 5 at the Hilton Philadelphia City Line Avenue. Come together with your local MS community to celebrate the accomplishments of the past year and key volunteers in the MS movement. Learn about the latest news in MS research from Brenda L. Banwell, MD, Chief of Neurology at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Our featured speaker this year is Rain Pryor, daughter of the late comedian Richard Pryor. Rain wears many hats (actress, singer, writer, producer and comedian), but perhaps the one closest to her heart is educator and advocate for MS. She is determined to find a cure for MS after her father lived with the disease for nearly 30 years.
