National MS Awareness Week Underway

This week (March 2 - 8) is National Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week. Designed to engage citizens across the country, the National MS Society and local chapters, are hosting walks, bike rides, and educational programs in hundreds of communities. There are nearly 400,000 Americans diagnosed with MS, with 200 new cases diagnosed every week. Worldwide the number approaches 2.5 million. Read more about MS in our blog. We previously wrote a three-part series describing more about this condition, who gets the disease, and the array of treatments available today for MS. Please consider playing an active role in combatting this disease that affects so many of our friends and neighbors. For more information on what activities you can participate in this week, visit the National MS Society.
