Advocacy involves efforts to influence the public and private sector that benefit and provide results for people living with multiple sclerosis and their families. We focus on a variety of topics including issues pertaining to people with chronic illnesses or disabilities, access to health care and quality health insurance, prescription drug coverage, discrimination, housing, transportation, and accessibility.
Join the movement! Even one voice can make an impact on the Long Island Chapter’s advocacy efforts to do something about MS NOW!
