Ways To Connect With The MS Community
One of the first things my neurologist recommended after diagnosis was for me to sign-up for an MS patient registry that conducts longitudinal research through simple surveys. Two of the most prominent patient-based research initiatives in the US are iConquerMS™ which is patient-governed and sponsored by the Accelerated Cure Project (ACP), a non-profit organization in Boston dedicated to research, and the NARCOMS project which is run by the Consortium of MS Centers (CMSC).
NMSS, MSF, and Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) publish quarterly or bi-annual magazines that are delivered to your home. It’s as easy as signing-up.
