This event is part of the Seminars and Support Groups at UCSF MS Center
At the UCSF Multiple Sclerosis Center, we recognize our patients’ different needs and interests for information and interaction with others within the MS community. We therefore have created a blended curriculum of live formats and internet-based programs for education and support.
