Being Black with MS carries unique challenges and experiences – from scientific and clinical differences in the disease itself to inequities in the healthcare system and more. The Black MS Experience Program Series is an opportunity to connect with others who understand the distinct experience of life with MS as a Black person. Through special program experiences, we will forge powerful connections, learn from leading scientific and healthcare experts, and give voice to the unique needs of the Black community living with this disease.
