Welcome to the MS Summit “lite”
If you had attended the MS Summit in 2018 you may recall hearing that we would be taking a year off in 2019 due to the Consortium of MS Centers (CMSC) Annual Meeting coming to Seattle in May. We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to the concerted efforts and creativity of the MS Summit planning committee, we will in fact be offering the Regional MS Summit next year!
The 2019 MS Summit will look and feel much like the MS Summit you are familiar with, if you have attended in the past. There are, however, two key differences: the date of Summit has changed (March 30, 2019) in order not to conflict with CMSC, and the length of the program has been adjusted to end at noon as opposed to the typical 4:00 PM.
We are very excited to be able to bring the MS Summit back in 2019 and hope you’ll be able to join us for another terrific day of learning and connecting with others.

The Regional MS Summit is designed for neurologists, physiatrists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who specifically focus on treatment of multiple sclerosis. Other disciplines are also welcome to attend. To uphold the integrity of the conference, this event is free of commercial bias and industry employees are prohibited from attending.
The education course has been designed with the goal to increase knowledge in health care providers regarding both basic underlying concepts as well as symptom management for MS, with the ultimate goal to optimize patient management and outcome.
