Many people with MS at some point in their career may need to request a reasonable accommodation to help them perform the duties of their job. The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires an employer to provide a reasonable accommodation to an employee or job applicant with a disability, unless doing so would cause significant expense or business hardship for the employer.

Multiple sclerosis is a disease with a poorly understood diversity of outcomes. Research suggests that having more than one chronic health condition (known as comorbidity) may explain this diversity. Reducing risk factors for comorbid conditions will not cure MS, but will certainly improve overall health and quality of life.
In many of these comorbid conditions, obesity is a common risk factor with significant ramifications. However, it is also a "modifiable risk factor," meaning YOU can change, control, and manage your weight. What you eat and how you move impacts your health and your MS!

Non-cardio exercises, including yoga and seated stretches, can help positively manage your MS symptoms and promote your overall health. In particular, there is growing research on the disease-modifying effects of yoga, in addition to its profound impact on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Best of all, these activities are accessible to everyone of all abilities. With some creativity and adaptations, everyone can do something!
Sue Kushner (Physical Therapist) will introduce a variety of non-cardio exercises and strategies to safely incorporate them into your life. Lynn Stazzone (Neuroscience Nurse Practitioner) will also identify how these exercises can increase your qualify of life, decrease the risk of secondary medical problems, and help improve many MS symptoms, including pain, fatigue, weakness, mobility issues, and bladder/bowel dysfunction. At the conclusion of the presentation, Sue and Lynn will answer your questions in an interactive “Q&A Session”
