National MS Education and Awareness Month®

Launched in 2003, National MS Education and Awareness Month is observed in March of each year, a nationwide effort by MS Focus: the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation and affiliated groups to raise the public's awareness of multiple sclerosis. The vital goals of this campaign are to promote an understanding of the scope of this disease, and to assist those with MS in making educated decisions about their healthcare.

Everyone, not just those affected by MS, is invited to participate in a wide variety of activities that happen across the country. Throughout the month, these activities will get people involved in raising awareness and will help to broaden their personal understanding of MS. Awareness kits are available from MS Focus for those who wish to become involved in the effort. Other MS organizations are encouraged to participate as well.
