Feedback about the Regional MS Summit from previous participants:

Non-biased, scientifically validated. Very useful for my daily practice. Commercial-free, honest discussion. Great to have so many MS minds in one room. Excellent focus on clinical applications of research and evidence-based medicine. The presenters did a very thorough job reviewing literature and were willing to share their personal approaches. All usable information, variety of topics. One of the BEST conferences I've attended.

Our ultimate goal in educating and partnering with healthcare professionals is to enhance the access and quality of care available to people living with MS.
