The New England Chapters of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, in collaboration with the Partners Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Center at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, is holding a patient and family program entitled: "Kids Get MS Too".
This important and exciting new program for children and teens with MS will bring families together to learn more in an environment geared to make kids feel comfortable asking questions, talking to other peers going through similar situations, or just listening.
