The goal of the TEAAMS study is to examine whether a home-based exercise training program can provide improvements in walking dysfunction, symptoms, and quality of life among Black and African Americans with MS who live in the Southern US. Participants will exercise at their convenience in their home or community 3 times per week for 16 weeks. A trained MS exercise coach will provide remote support and encouragement throughout the program. Participants will complete questionnaires online before starting the program, immediately after finishing the program, and 4 months after completing the initial assessments. Participants will be compensated for completing the TEAAMS study.

You may be eligible if you:
  • Have a diagnosis of MS
  • Self-identify as African-American or Black
  • Live in the Southern United States
  • Are 18 to 64 years of age
