Explore. Discover. Realize. Live.
Using an interdisciplinary team of nationally recognized professionals, this intensive three-day program goes well beyond traditional health and wellness programs by providing comprehensive assessments and education about MS – its effects, treatment options and lifestyle adaptation strategies. Through seminars, interactive workshops, support groups and goal setting, participants develop a personalized lifestyle plan, learning how to address lifestyle areas unique to them, including nutrition, exercise, rehabilitation, mobility, bladder/sexual function, psychological support, and ways to seek out and acquire needed resources. With a staff to participant ratio of 2:1, participants receive an unsurpassed level of personal attention and are able to speak with medical professionals in an intimate, unhurried environment that is rare in health care today.
Including Support Partners in the Journey
Spouses, family members or friends are encouraged to attend the CAN DO Program. Special sessions are devoted to this group to explore their needs, goals, concerns, and challenges.
