MS Next Step
The MS Next Step(SM) program has a two-fold purpose in its function of supporting people with MS and the medical professionals who serve them. To that end, the National MS Society has developed a patient portfolio that is intended for distribution by neurologists to people diagnosed with MS within the last 24 months. The portfolio contains information about the disease, treatment and services provided by the National MS Society and the Indiana State Chapter. The portfolio that has been approved by the Client Education Committee of the National Medical Advisory Board of the National MS Society.
If you are a medical professional who works with newly diagnosed patients and would like to request MS Next Step (SM) kits, please download the MS Next Step (SM) order form and send to:
