Join the global movement to end MS
This year, for the first time, 80 MS organizations around the globe are taking part in World MS Day, May 27, 2009.
In the United States, with the opportunity for health care reform a real possibility, the society is asking all supporters of the MS movement to contact their federal legislators on World MS Day and voice support for comprehensive and accessible health care coverage that includes the Society’s Health Care Reform Principles.
“There should be one global standard of health care to ensure that all people with MS can lead a life of possibility, dignity and fulfillment,” said Joyce Nelson, President and CEO of the National MS Society. “On World MS Day, Americans can do their part by showing their support for national health care reform.”
Learn more about the Society’s National Health Care Reform Principles and tips on contacting your legislators by visiting the National MS Society's Government Affairs & Advocacy pages.
