Many people with MS have been looking for a self-management app tailored to their needs in managing MS and health needs on their MS journey. Researchers at the University of Illinois worked with MS patients and clinicians to develop a new self-management app, SavvyHealth. We need people with MS to test how well the new app will help people with MS live well. We have a token of gratitude reserved for participants who complete the study.

To be eligible, participants must
  • be 18 or older,
  • be diagnosed with any subtype of multiple sclerosis,
  • use a smartphone or a tablet (either iOS or Android),
  • have access to reliable Internet,
  • be willing to use the new app for 21 days,
  • be willing to be in an intervention or control group.
Research assistants will assist you in ensuring the new app will function well on your device before you use it to start a 21-day test trial.  We also provide tech support if you have technical issues during the trial.
The research team is happy and excited to speak more with you about the study. Sign up today at , call us at the lab (217)-300-2800, or email us at
