Each year, local volunteers are nominated to receive national recognition for their outstanding service to the National MS Society. Detailed nomination forms are submitted for each candidate to volunteer review panels from around the country, and they have the challenging job of selecting the final honorees.
Here are two local Greater Carolinas winners:
Angela Rosenberg, PT, DPH
Angela Rosenberg, a physical therapist, Associate Professor and a person living with MS, became the driving force behind the creation of an innovative MS focused education track and scholarship program for physical therapists. The program is now training new physical therapists in specialized care for people living with MS. Dr. Rosenberg’s contribution of knowledge, expertise and influence is ensuring greater access to this specialized care and helping to realize the Society’s strategic response goals.
Michel C. “Mike” Daisley
Mike Daisley is a dedicated volunteer leader who, for over 32 years, has made advocacy a focus of his life. He uses his network of political connections to raise the profile of the Society’s priorities, regularly using his skills to make these priorities relevant to state leaders and people living with MS. His leadership has helped the Chapter develop a successful advocacy network and expanded its reach by building relationships and developing coalition partners.
