Have your say about MS
The independent advisory panel making recommendations to the Ministry of Health about future options for investment in multiple sclerosis education, treatment and research wants to hear from people affected by, or with an interest in, MS. The online survey will be available until December 31.
MS Advisory Panel
The Saskatchewan government continues to support research that may provide answers and further the science for people who have MS.
A panel of MS patients and advocates, researchers, medical specialists and representatives from health organizations and the Office of Disability Issues has been established to review various research, education and care improvement options and make recommendations to government in early 2015.
