Become an MS Activist


Each of us has a story that can help increase awareness about MS, educate public officials, and drive change. Our collective voice is a powerful force, moving us toward a world free of MS.

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. If you are interested in joing the New York City-Southern New York as we work to foster change that will benefit those impacted by multiple sclerosis, become an activist.

Please contact Gene Veigl at (212) 453-3238 or at to become an MS Activist.
