This year, MSIF joined forces with the World Federation of Neurology to celebrate World Brain Day. The theme was ‘stop multiple sclerosis’ and many of the World Brain Day 2021 key messages were underpinned by findings from the Atlas of MS. An esteemed panel of speakers took part in a webinar, discussing how we can stop MS by diagnosing earlier, providing better access to life-changing treatments, and advocating for improved quality of life. The expert speakers included MSIF’s very own Professor Brenda Banwell and Professor Mai Sharawy.
