Educational teleconferences Spring 2013 Series: The Spectrum of MS
Because MS affects more than just the individual diagnosed, our programs welcome friends and family members unaccompanied by a person with MS.
Our programs often fill up quickly. While we fully understand you may need to cancel for various reasons, we ask that you let us know in advance if you cannot attend a program you’ve registered for whenever possible. This will help reduce our costs and enable people who may be on a waiting list to have the opportunity to join the program.
Join us for a free series of informative conference calls on a variety of topics for people living with MS and their families.
Wednesday, April 17, 2013, 6:30 – 7: 30 p.m.
Christine St. Laurent, MSN, RN, MSCN
MS certified nurse, formerly the clinical nurse coordinator at the MS Center at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, MA.
Learn about common bladder and bowel issues that can arise with MS, and ways to treat and cope with them.
Wednesday, May 8, 2013, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Pamela S. Boyle, MS, FAACS
Join us for an open and honest discussion about the personal and intimate side of living with MS. This presentation provides opportunities for participants to explore concepts of intimacy, challenge their communication skills and explore a range of sexual expressions to awaken or enhance the sexual connection.
Wednesday, June 12, 2013, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
June Halper, MSN, ANP, FAAN
Sometimes MS symptoms can progress to the point that they significantly interfere with daily activities. Maintaining control and independence in everyday life doesn’t necessarily mean doing everything the same way you did it before. This call will discuss how to navigate the world of assistive technology and suggest ways to modify your environment at home and at work to optimize control and independence.
TO REGISTER by phone: 1-800-344-4867, option 1
