MS 101

MS101 sizedMS 101 is a 2-hour class for the newly-diagnosed in a small-group setting that allows for a frank discussion tailored specifically to the day's attendees. The presenters go over the basics of MS, how our understanding of the disease has changed over the years, and what we know today. You are encouraged to bring your questions to the table. Topics can range from “what is MS?” to the diagnosis process, the symptoms, an overview of available treatment options, and how to maximize your wellbeing throughout your life.

Family and friends are welcome at the class, but please let us know how many people will be with you when you sign up. Attendees will leave with a folder full of helpful information and articles.

MS 101 provides a place for newly-diagnosed individuals and their families and friends to ask questions and get answers that go deeper than clinical explanations and medical facts.

These classes are offered twice a month: At the CU Anschutz Medical Campus for patients of the Rocky Mountain MS Center Clinic; and at the National MS Society in Denver for anyone.

MS 101 sessions are led by Elissa Berlinger, LCSW and MS Educator, and Kelsey Lantz, RMMSC Education Coordinator. Please see our calendar for upcoming dates. 

MS 101 is free, but space is limited to maintain the small group format. Advanced registration is required.
