The UK MS Society is holding the fifth in a series of ‘Living with MS’ events this November, designed to bring the MS community together to enjoy a range of activities and learn about the condition.
The upcoming event, scheduled for 17 November, will involve a session on cognition and memory from Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist Anita Rose, a chair yoga class for people with mobility difficulties with expert Caroline Pritchard and talk on advances in MS research – including stem cell research – from the MS Society’s Head of Research, Susan Kohlhaas.
The gathering will take place in Coventry and promises to build on the success of Epsom’s ‘Living with MS’ day in July, which received overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees.
‘The best session was on pain, which really helped me understand some of my MS symptoms and gave me a great insight into how to deal with them – very good indeed!’, said one guest.
Another participant enthused, ‘The ‘Living with MS’ day was such a wonderful surprise! I met some lovely people, made contact with a host of new friends and learnt some interesting things about MS that I didn’t know before.’
Pilates teacher Beth Svarovska, who hosted a class at the Epsom event, said, ‘It was a lovely opportunity to connect with many people on various MS-related projects, which helps to inspire us all and enrich our work with people with MS.’
