The Rocky Mountain MS Center’s MS Young Professionals Network (MSYPN) is starting to grow!
The mission of MSYPN is to provide an opportunity for young professionals to support the work of the Rocky Mountain MS Center and raise awareness of MS in Colorado through networking, fundraising and volunteer events. Our members include young professionals who have a connection to MS or an interest in learning more about MS. MSYPN members join us for meaningful volunteer activities, networking opportunities, and for MS support and social engagement. Throughout the year, MSYPN members and their friends meet at networking happy hours, plan special fundraising events, and Board socials.

"I joined the youth network because I saw an opportunity to connect with people my own age who either have, or have been directly affected by MS,” says MSYPN member and University of Colorado graduate student Reese Garcia. “This group has not only provided support and friendships, but it has also been a way for me to actively fight and raise awareness for this disease."
MSYPN is beginning to meet bi-monthly and our first meeting will be Thursday, April 13th from 5:30 – 6:30pm at Spangalang Brewery ( 2736 Welton St, Denver). We’ll be getting to know one another and working on a volunteer project for the KADEP Prom. The meeting will be casual and laid back.
