Description

Isle of Wight MS Society is delighted to welcome you to our 2019 Conference. The theme of our one day conference is 'Living Well with Multiple Sclerosis'. The morning session will focus on the latest developments in MS research. And we're delighted to welcome guest speakers from the MS Society Research team.

In the afternoon you will get to meet the volunteers at the Isle of Wight MS Society - the only local organisation providing information, vital services and support to the MS community on the Island. We will also welcome local MS professionals and others on to the stage as they talk about their work locally and to explain how a healthy diet, regular exercise, stress management and other wellness strategies can help you manage your symptoms and feel your best.
