    Outstanding webinar! Dr. Shapiro’s lecture was the most informative one hour in the subsequent 19 years. The stuff Can Do MS is putting up is cutting edge communication use of the Internet. I went to the CAN DO Program 19 years ago. It was the most rewarding 5 days of my 25 years with MS. There I learned to accept the disease I had. Thank you to all involved.

    Pharmaceutical Transparency


    Can Do MS’s programs enhance and complement traditional models of care by focusing on the physical, emotional, social, occupational, spiritual and intellectual aspects aspects of living with MS. We believe that pharmaceutical therapies are one part of the overall care plan for people living with MS. We work to educate those with MS, as well as medical and pharmaceutical professionals, on our whole-person, whole-health, whole-community philosophy to maximizing health and living with MS.

    Can Do MS’s Relationship with the Pharmaceutical Industry
    Many pharmaceutical companies recognize that our programs complement the therapies they offer. When pharmaceutical companies provide support to our programs that require outside funding, such as CAN DO® Program, JUMPSTART® Program, TAKE CHARGE® Program, Webinar Series and other online resources, they do not have input into the content of these programs, nor do they direct the use of the funds spent in the service of our mission.
