    I appreciated Janet DeClark's lecture regarding cognitive changes in MS. Regardless of whether changed occur due to age or MS, Janet offered helpful suggestions on how to manage such changes. She did so in a sensitive, caring way.

    About Us


    We’re All About What You Can Do

    Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, formerly The Jimmie Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis, is national nonprofit organization that provides innovative lifestyle empowerment programs for people living with MS and their support partners.

    Engaging Programs. Empowering Results.

    Our personalized and experiential programs take a unique whole person, whole health, whole community view of maximizing health and life with MS, equipping participants with the expanded knowledge, skills, tools and confidence to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors, actively co-manage their disease and live their best lives.  Can Do MS honors the legacy and beliefs of organizational founder, Jimmie Heuga, who embodied a positive, can do philosophy that you can stay well and live well with MS.  Recognizing that MS is a family disease, we offer the industry’s most comprehensive range of programs addressing the needs, goals and concerns of support partners and family members.

    Complementing Traditional Medical Approaches

    We enhance and complement traditional models of MS care by exploring the physical, interpersonal, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of living with MS.  Through a range of learning formats, including multi-day workshops, weekend seminars, teleconferences, webinars and peer support programs, we help people expand their awareness and deepen their understanding of their unique condition, teaching them new life skills to take charge of their lives.

    A Unique Community of Knowledge and Support

    By working with collaborative partners and drawing from a national network of committed interdisciplinary MS specialists (our programs consultants) that include exercise physiologists, nutritionists, neurologists, physical and occupational therapists, physicians, psychologists, speech/language pathologists, registered nurses and other health care specialists, we provide people with a unique and caring network of support and resources to help them live their best lives.
