    The Power Behind Our Programs

    For many of our programs, workshops and seminars in local markets, Can Do MS draws on a unique, interdisciplinary network of more than 65 health care professionals from around the U.S. and Canada, including exercise physiologists, nutritionists, neurologists, physical and occupational therapists, physicians, psychologists, speech/language pathologists, registered nurses and other health care specialists.

    This network of professionals is deeply committed to leveraging their unique skills in one of the industry’s most collaborative settings to help people living with MS and their support partners transform challenges into new possibilities. Our program participants not only benefit from a unique, interdisciplinary approach to symptom management, but they receive a level of personalized attention and support from a caring community dedicated exclusively to helping them live their best lives with MS. Participants will not find this level of care anywhere else.
