Dietary approaches to treating fatigue in MS

WAS_2016_eNews-Sept16-Diet-Fatigue-ThumbThe Society has committed over $1 million to support a clinical trial at the University of Iowa led by Terry Wahls, MD, to compare the ability of two popular diets (Wahls Protocol and Swank Diet) to treat multiple sclerosis-related fatigue, a disabling symptom that can significantly interfere with a person’s ability to function at home and work.


National Voter Registration Day, Sept. 27

WAS_2016_eNews-Sept16-Vote-ThumbIn recent presidential election years, only about 60% of the eligible population has voted. Currently more than 1 out of 7 eligible voters lives with a disability; yet the voter turnout rate of people with disabilities is nearly 6% lower than that of other Americans. Know your rights, register and vote in your next election!


“Voting has always been important to me. But now that I have MS, I have found that it is even more important because so many people have this basic right taken away from them because of they are unable to physically get to a polling location.” Karl, MS Activist. Read more about Karl and his recent experience participating in a local caucus.
