GET SET FOR WORLD MS DAY!

World MS Day

world MS dayThe countdown is on to World MS Day 2018, and right up until Wednesday 30 May we’ll be joining the global campaign reflecting on how research is bringing us closer to better treatments and a cure for multiple sclerosis.

The hashtag #BringingUsCloser is your ticket to finding people and content on sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. World MS Day 2018’s research theme makes this a great opportunity to get people affected by multiple sclerosis closer to researchers, as well as each other. We encourage you to interact and share your thoughts and experiences.

We’ll also be running live events and selling World MS Day merchandising to help raise money and awareness, and we’ll update this page as more details and events come to hand.

If you’re arranging a Community Fundraising event or any other World MS Day activity that you’d like us to publicise, contact us at intouch@ms.org.au and we’ll add you to this page.


MS SYMPOSIUM (HOBART, TAS)

The MS Symposium held on World MS Day in Hobart is an opportunity to bring the MS community together to inform, educate and challenge. You will hear from a range of renowned speakers including Dr Kaylene Young (Menzies Institute), Dr. Tomas Kalincik (Neurologist), Dr. Litsa Kiropoulos (Psychologist), Ngaire Hobbins (Nutritionist) and Kim Goodes (TasCoss) and it’s a fantastic opportunity to meet others in your local community. You will hear about the latest in medications, treatments and approaches to managing multiple sclerosis and will be encouraged with the outcomes of a cognitive therapy intervention for those who are newly diagnosed with MS and experiencing depression. You will be challenged to consider the benefits of good nutrition and how to go about this as well as hearing about local community supports and services available to you.

“We are thrilled to be hosting an MS Symposium to bring the community together and discuss the latest in research, treatments and living well with multiple sclerosis this World MS Day. It is a great opportunity to raise awareness for multiple sclerosis, and being in the Eastern Standard time zone we will be the first in the world to celebrate World MS Day!” - Sandra Walker, Acting CEO, Multiple Sclerosis Limited.
