MS-Related Organizations

(Information updated July 2012)

The following MS-related organizations provide information, education, and support to individuals with MS, their families, and other interested individuals. Topics include MS research, disease treatments, symptom management, MS center locations, additional resources, and social/community support.

The first section is devoted to the Multiple Sclerosis Coalition, a collaborative network of eight independent MS organizations. The mission of this network is to increase opportunities for cooperation and provide greater opportunity to leverage the effective use of resources for the benefit of the MS community. For more information, please view the MSC’s brochure, or visit www.ms-coalition.org.
