National MS Society Public Policy Conference


In this article

Join Virtually

We are MS activists, speaking with one clear voice to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis and educate elected officials on the needs of people affected by MS. When we raise our voices together, share our stories, and connect with our elected officials to urge action, we can make systemic change. MS activists have always played an important role in driving change for people with MS and beyond. 

The National MS Society’s 2022 Public Policy Conference was held on March 7 and activites were able to advocate for change on important policy issues affecting the MS community.
