April 17th - 10 - noon.
Dr. Brent Compton will talk about Super Foods - what are they and how they help everyone along with the effect of diet and proper nutrition in regards to MS.
Dr. Compton spoke to the group a few years ago and everyone really liked the presentation so we asked him to do it again since we have so many new members.

We will also have Amy Cearly (pronounced seer ly) Caregiver Advocate & Resource Navigator 205-9316, do a short presentation on the services she offers.

May 15th - 10 - noon.
We will be participating in the Strategic Plan Discussion from the NMSS.
This is a unique opportunity to share with key decision makers what it means to live with MS both from the perspective of the person diagnosed and their family members and loved ones. As a group we will be answering their questions and have a general discussion and then we will send our answers back to National MS Society.
