Black MS Experience Program Series


Black MS Experience Summit

Virtual program coming Sept. 22 & 23
Registration opens summer 2021


Being Black with MS carries unique challenges and experiences. From scientific and clinical differences in the disease itself to stark inequities in the healthcare system and beyond. 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. Throughout several unique program experiences, we will forge powerful connections, learn from leading scientific and healthcare experts and give voice to the unique community needs.
Black MS Experience Group Discussions
Engage with others who have similar interests by joining us for virtual small group discussions. Through a combination of content, videos, and discussions, this program will allow Black MS Community to be seen and understood. These discussions aim to create a safe space to raise awareness and build connections to navigate and overcome challenges that may be present in daily life.
Registration coming soon!
