World MS Day 2019

My Invisible MS

world MS day
World MS Day is officially marked on 30 May every year, and events and campaigns take place throughout the month to help raise awareness and bring the global MS community together.

This year’s theme is My Invisible MS.

The campaign aims to give a voice to everyone affected by multiple sclerosis, as well as a platform to share experiences with invisible symptoms, and to challenge common misconceptions about the condition.

This year, we are hosting a World MS Day symposium in Newcastle which will explore new and upcoming medications, treatments and approaches to managing multiple sclerosis. Download the program.

The Symposium and livestream have now finished, however you can watch each of the presentations from the day below:
