Join the National MS Society as we host “Gaining Momentum in 2011: Annual Meeting and Panel Discussion”
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Kentucky-Southeast Indiana Chapter is hosting an Annual Meeting for all those affected by multiple sclerosis and supportive of the MS cause. Join us for a pancake breakfast, presentation of awards, and panel discussion with leading MS experts. Bring your family and friends for a complimentary breakfast and a look back on the accomplishments of the Chapter in 2011!
The event will take place on Saturday, January 21, 2012 from 9:30 to 11:30 AM at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Louisville, KY. An all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast will be provided by Chris Cakes. The program will feature Dawne Gee of WAVE 3 as Mistress of Ceremonies and Lee Garner, Motivational Speaker.
The chapter created the Sylvy awards, named in honor of National MS Society Founder Sylvia Lawry, to celebrate the amazing people who have brought their passion to our movement. Today, the MS movement is made up of people, like Sylvia, who know that passion alone can move mountains. We are honored to present Jeannie Unruh, longtime volunteer and Chapter friend, with the “Sylvy of the Year” award.
The panel discussion will feature Dr. Carey Twyman, Dr. Clare Braun-Hashemi, Laura Miller (Physical Therapist), and Teresa Guess, RN, MSCN discussing recent advancements and research in the MS cause.
The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now—to move together toward a world free of MS. The Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. To create a world free of MS, we must discover the cause, increase treatment options, and most importantly, find a cure.
Join the movement to support the National MS Society, Kentucky Southeast-Indiana Chapter in our efforts to create a world free of MS. Bring your family and friends on January 21, 2012 as we look back on great year in 2011!
