Event/service information

Join us this August as we look at living with MS and having a family. We'll be joined by Dr. Ruth Dobson as she discusses family planning, DMTs, and pregnancy and MS.

Dr. Dobson is a Reader and an Honorary Consultant Neurologist based at the Wolfson Institute of Population Health, Queen Mary University of London. Her main current research interests are around the early identification and epidemiology of MS. And these include a particular focus on genetic and environmental risk factors. She's particularly interested in making sure all people with MS are represented in research. Dr. Dobson led the publication of UK guidelines on pregnancy in MS and recently launched a UK MS pregnancy register.

We'll also be joined by a volunteer with lived experience.

What will I need to take part?

We use Zoom, a video meeting software for our events. So all you need to join is a laptop, tablet, phone or computer with a stable internet connection.

How do I join the webinar?

Before the event we'll send you an email which will have a link to the webinar. The email will also tell you how to ask questions and make comments during the webinar.

When the webinar's due to start, click on the link and you'll be taken to the Zoom call. If the session hasn’t started you'll see a message to tell you this. Just hang on and when the session starts you'll see two or three people pop up on your screen.

When I join the webinar can other people see or hear me?

No, you can’t be seen or heard by other participants.

Can I ask questions?

Yes, usually you can ask questions and make comments. The facilitator will tell participants how to do this. When there are more than 100 participants, our license will only allow the first 100 people to ask questions during the event.

Please note we can’t respond or offer advice to questions about your specific circumstances or anything relating to your own personal health. Questions will be collated and we will try to cover your queries if not your specific question.

What should I do if I can no longer attend?

If you're unable to take part, please email us at [email protected] so we can give your place to someone else.
