Preventing Falls in MS
Do you experience falls? If so, you're not alone. More than 50% of people with MS fall at least once every three months. For many, falls are a common occurrence of daily life, increasing not only the likelihood of severe injuries but also feelings of isolation and avoidance. Learning adaptive strategies and exercises can help you manage and prevent falls.  Read more .

Celebrate Your Support Partners This March
Join us to thank the support partners who help empower the MS community! During Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness Month, Can Do MS is excited to be working with Biogen and other MS organizations on #MySupportHero - a way to celebrate those who support us in our journey with MS, be it family, friends or healthcare professionals.

There are a number of ways to show appreciation:

  • Visit to download the official #MySupportHero virtual flower and replace your social media profile picture with this image to symbolize your support partner appreciation

Tuesday, April 10, 2018, 8 - 9:15 p.m. EST

This webinar is about understanding cognition in MS. Cognition means different things to people and is often confusing. Is memory affected? Do our personalities change? What is happening when we feel disorganized or overwhelmed? We will be discussing what cognition is and how and why it can affect our daily lives.  

Please join us at no charge.

The Can Do MS Webinar Series is made possible by:

Biogen  |  Sanofi Genzyme  |  Genentech  |  Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals
