The New England Chapters of the National MS Society, in collaboration with the Partners Pediatric MS Center at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, invites you and your family to another exciting “Kids Get MS Too”:
“Life After High School: College 101”
Saturday, April 21, 2007 - PLEASE NOTE THIS PROGRAM HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE
10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
This program is free but you must register by April 9th
Lunch will be provided and parking is available.
We are planning a day of information and networking– both about MS & transitioning from high school to college! Dr. Tanuja Chitnis (MS neurologist), Dr. Ellen Braaten, (Child neuropsychologist), Gretchen Timmel (Educational liaison), Carrie Bryant, a college student living with MS, and staff from the National MS Society will discuss preparing for life after high school and the college experience. Children and teens will be able to network with their peers, learn more about MS and this important life transition, and have some fun playing billiards and arcade games.
This important and exciting program for children and teens with MS brings families together to learn more in an environment geared to make kids feel comfortable asking questions, talking to others going through similar situations, or just listening.
Financial assistance is available to families in need and can include transportation and overnight accommodations for those traveling long distances. For more information, please contact Sarah Fimian at 1-800-493-9255, option 2, ext 153.
