To make our programs available to as many people living with multiple sclerosis as we can, we work collaboratively with MS care providers and organizations around the U.S. and Canada to provide our lifestyle empowerment programs where they’re most requested and needed. In 2009, Can Do MS formed a collaborative partnership with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to align resources and more effectively improve the quality of life of people with MS and their support partners. We are also members of the Consortium of MS Centers and MS Coalition. Collaborate With US to Transform Lives Together.
