CLASS CHANGE: The Wavehouse Athletic Club in San Diego has changed class times! The new class time is Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10:30-11:30am. Make sure you have your waiver.
Don’t let the heat of summer keep you from enjoying the fun! We have a valuable article available that offers tips on how to beat the heat, as well as resources that can help you obtain necessary equipment to keep cool. Read our Gearing Up to Cool Down article on page 12 for details on how you can manage the heat of summer!
Clinical trials help to determine if a drug is safe and effective for people with MS. People with MS who are willing to volunteer in these studies make it possible for all of us to look forward to new and better therapies.
