Description

Multiple sclerosis #ThinkHand Awareness Event

Please accept this warm invitation to a celebration of hand and upper limb function in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Evidence suggests the course of MS, which affects over 120,000 in the UK, can be modified at virtually every stage of the disease, including people who as a result of their MS are dependent on mobility aids, such as canes, crutches and wheelchairs (advanced MS).

Live music and a display of artwork by people with MS will remind us of the value of upper limb function; short presentations will focus on current and future research aimed at preserving and recovering respective capacity.

A key hurdle for progress for people with advanced MS is the adoption by regulators, such as the European Medicines Agency, of hand function as a primary outcome in trials of disease-modifying treatments. We are therefore asking for your support to make a real difference for people with advanced MS.

We are delighted Michelle Mitchell, CEO of the MS Society of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, will join us as a guest of honour, and sincerely hope you will be able to attend.

Drinks and canapés will be served on arrival.

The venue is wheelchair accessible

Thank you.

Dr Klaus Schmierer & Professor Gavin Giovannoni

BartsMS, Barts and The London School of Medicine & Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, and Barts Health NHS Trust.
