Webinar now available for: "Managing Stress in Multiple Sclerosis"
We are pleased to provide you with an important webinar
that was just produced in partnership with the International Organization
of MS Nurses by an educational grant from Sanofi Genzyme. The program,
Stress in Multiple Sclerosis" was developed
based on feedback from readers and runs approximately 30 minutes.
Since MS is in itself a stress-producing condition and
since an MS care professional can't manage stress for the patient, an
effective program must be adopted and maintained by the individual. There
are many non-pharmacologic approaches that have been proven useful for
people with MS, and choosing the best one must be an individualized
approach. This webinar guides listeners through a clearer understanding
of the concept of stress ("What is stress? How does it affect the
human body? How can it affect my MS?") along with some tips and
resources for finding effective stress-management solutions. We encourage
you to view this program and share with family, friends, supports groups
and anyone else you believe might benefit from it.
At the end of the program, there is a brief survey. We
would greatly appreciate you taking a moment to fill it out.
