The National MS Society is closely monitoring the latest developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic and we are taking proactive steps to protect people affected by MS, our event participants and the broader MS community. Based on recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we will not host events through May 17 in person. We were able to reschedule this event to September 14, 2020 and look forward to seeing you then.
