Focus on South Florida: MS Awareness

Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people suffer from m-s and there is no known cure for the autoimmune disease. The organization “MS Views and News” is dedicated to provide education, advocacy and service to enhance the quality of life within the MS. We focus on the work the group does and its upcoming symposium.
