The 2020 Neuroscience Expo offers free online sessions with the latest information about multiple sclerosis (MS) for patients and caregivers.
For those living with, or caring for someone with MS, the condition can present new challenges or the need to change the care plan.
This event allows individuals living with a neurological condition — or their family, caregivers, support care providers and others — a way to connect with speakers from Norton Neuroscience Institute and other MS-related specialties for live presentations and discussions.
The Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Center, in partnership with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, is hosting a three-part featured session on “Pathways to Wellness” with neurologist Geeta A. Ganesh, M.D., Colin Hulls, DPT, NCS, and Sara L. Perry, APRN.
