It is an honor to serve as the Co-Chairs of the Congressional Multiple Sclerosis Caucus in the 117th Congress,” said Representatives David Price (D-NC) and Steve Chabot (R-OH). “Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, is an unpredictable and devastating disease that impacts not only the lives of those who experience it, but also their families, friends, and communities. It is our goal to ensure that federal policy promotes innovative research, enables access to high-quality care, and supports individuals and families impacted by MS. We will continue our work in the 117th Congress of raising awareness about the disease in hopes of one day living in a world free of MS.
