Living with Progressive MS: A Webinar for Veterans with MS

Optimal care for individuals living with progressive MS involves several strategies integrated into an overall treatment plan. In addition to managing the disease course, working with your healthcare team to manage symptoms, engaging in preventive care strategies, identifying and treating any co-existing health conditions, and using complementary, nontraditional treatments is important.

This webinar, brought to you by the VA, National MS Society, and Paralyzed Veterans of America, can help you learn strategies for managing your MS in an integrated, comprehensive way and what resources are available to help you live your best life with MS.
