2012 Annual Meeting: A Year to Celebrate
The 2012 Annual Meeting took place at the Crowne Plaza Philadelphia-Cherry Hill on Tuesday, December 4. Around 500 members of the local MS community came together to celebrate the accomplishments of the past year and hear what's on the horizon. The chapter provided an update on how it is helping local people living with MS and honored the efforts of key volunteers in the MS movement.
Dr. Dina Jacobs delivered this year's research update, providing valuable information about MS treatment. Dr. Jacobs is an Assistant Professor of Neurology and Associate Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Center at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and Co-Chief of the Multiple Sclerosis Division at the University of Pennsylvania. Her presentation is available through the links below:
The highlight of the meeting was keynote speaker David Osmond, part of the second generation of singers in the famous Osmond family - and a second generation living with MS. Just a few years ago, singer David Osmond was paralyzed in a wheelchair, afraid his performing days were behind him. But due to circumstances he can only call miraculous, Osmond is on his feet and on stage again. According to Osmond, “MS is one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me because it has given me a new perspective on life. I feel very fortunate to be able to share my story.”
We would like to thank our supporters:
