Is it for me?

Living with MS is an information day for people with MS and their carers, family and friends.

The day is attended by a range of people from those who have are newly diagnosed to those who have been living with MS for some time.

The main session is 'MS Research' given by Dr T Wolf, Consultant Neurologist of James Cook University Hospital.

This event will also run workshops focusing on managing fatigue, keeping healthy, employment and a session for carers.

Why should I attend?

The event provides a chance to learn the facts about MS and how to manage your life with MS. It’s also an opportunity to share information and experiences with other people affected by MS.

Staff from the MS Society will be available on the day, as well as key healthcare professionals from the local area for any questions you might have.

The day includes lunch and refreshments. Booking is essential to guarantee your place.
