Is there a link between what I eat and my MS ? What is gut bacteria and why should I care? What are some strategies to preparing healthy meals while avoiding stress and preserving energy? What resources are available to help?
Get answers to these questions and more in this interactive webinar, which will look at the latest research into diet and MS while providing practical tips for daily meal planning.

With spring in the air, it’s time to think about getting out and being active! We all know that physical activity and exercise will improve our health, but incorporating them into our daily lives can be difficult. “I don’t have the time or energy.” “I don’t even know where to start.” “I’ve tried exercising and couldn’t keep it up…what’s the point in trying again.” “I just can’t do it.” The symptoms of MS significantly add to these physical and mental barriers.
Exercising is a not an act, but a daily habit. It’s not easy, but with the right resources, skills, and motivation, EVERYONE can make exercise a habit. In this interactive webinar, a physical therapist will review how exercise can improve MS symptoms and overall wellness, while providing examples of a well-rounded exercise routine. An occupational therapist will explore how utilizing adaptive equipment and modifying activities can enhance your quality life. Both speakers will offer a multidisciplinary approach to “jumpstarting” your exercise habits and answer your questions in an interactive forum.

About 65% of patients with MS will present with a cognitive disorder which can change relationship dynamics. This webinar will review common changes in thinking skills of individuals with MS and how those changes impact relationships. Also, how functioning in the real-world changes and what you can do about it.
Please join us as we discuss how to manage cognitive challenges with a psychologist and a speech language pathologist.
