Maintaining Your Wellness and MS Treatment Plan
Friday, July 30 | 1:00 PM EDT – 2:00 PM EDT

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following your treatment plan is the best possible strategy for managing your MS. Because following a wellness plan and taking a disease-modifying therapy over a long period can be challenging, it's essential to understand the impact adherence to your plan has on symptom management, disease progression, and your overall quality of life. Join our discussion with Dr. Carrie Sammarco, MS Nurse Practitioner at NYU MS Comprehensive Care Center at the Langone Medical Center, about what it means to follow a wellness and treatment plan, barriers to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and health-promoting strategies that will help you manage your MS and feel your best.
