    We support Can Do MS because they help people every day. Research for a cure is great, but we also feel it is important to help people living with multiple sclerosis live a full life. We are big proponents and supporters of lifestyle programs and are pleased to help Can Do MS support scholarships for people to attend programs.

    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.
