2019 Young Adult Webinar Series

As a young adult living with MS, you may be facing a unique set of personal and professional challenges. How will MS impact your career? What effects will MS have on your mood and cognition? Will your loved ones, both now and in the future, see beyond your disease?

In this three-part Young Adult Webinar Series, participants (including support partners!) will learn about strategies and resources to face their unique set of personal and professional challenges, discover new questions and answers to their concerns, and feel more connected and confident in their lives beyond MS, now and in the future.

Investing in Your Future

Thursday, October 10, 2019 | 8pm EST

We all have an idea of what our lives will look like. MS can change that idea in many ways. In this interactive webinar, we will discuss resiliency, communication, and team approaches for investing in your health and wellness, relationships, and employment.


Staying Active in an Unfamiliar Body

Thursday, October 17, 2019 | 8pm EST

In our busy lives, it is hard to prioritize and strategize exercising so we can feel our best and protect our physical abilities for the future. This becomes even more difficult with the challenges of MS. In this webinar, a renowned exercise physiologist and physical therapist will help participants and support partners understand how exercise can impact disease progression (including mood, cognition, and relationships); adapt physical activities as your symptoms fluctuate; and make a plan to use exercise to help manage MS symptoms and prevent other health conditions.


The Art of Communication

Thursday, October 24, 2019 | 8pm EST

Learning strategies to communicate effectively and adapt when talking to healthcare providers, employers, co-workers, family members, spouses, and even romantic interests can help you advocate for yourself, take control of your lives, and maintain a strong, positive outlook on your future. This webinar will feature interactive exercises focused on helping participants and support partners prioritize questions and brain chatter; build adaptable, multi-dimensional communication skills; and manage internal and external factors that may impact communication.
