Partners in MS Care are healthcare providers — such as neurologists, rehab providers, mental health and long-term care providers — who have demonstrated knowledge and expertise in treating people with MS. These providers have a relationship with the National MS Society which helps connect their patients to the information, resources and support available to assist them in living their best lives.
Centers for Comprehensive Care are Partners in MS Care that provide coordinated multi-disciplinary care. These are uniquely identified through the Center for Comprehensive Care logo.

Finding the right provider and learning to advocate for the care you need is important. Learn more about developing your healthcare team.
The National MS Society has established a nationwide network of Pediatric MS Centers engaged in research to better understand the cause(s) of MS, characteristics of these disorders in children, and how best to provide care for children with MS. In addition to engagement in research, these centers offer comprehensive evaluation and care to children and teens (up to age 18). A child does not need to have a definite diagnosis of MS in order to be evaluated by one of these centers.
In addition to the centers in the network, you can use the Find Doctors and Resources search to locate neurologic care or Centers for Comprehensive Care in your state, and those with a pediatric specialty will be noted.
