The Department of Neurology and the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Comprehensive Care Center at Stony Brook University Medical Center is holding a free educational series geared toward MS patients and their families. The series runs each Thursday evening, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm, from March 25 through April 15. Featured speakers will be physicians, nurses, and other specialists from the MS Comprehensive Care Center at SBUMC.
Each weekly program includes a theme/topic, a one-hour presentation, an open dialogue on the topic and related issues, and a question and answer session. Light refreshments will also be served during the program.
On March 25 Drs. Patricia Coyle and Lauren Krupp, neurologists specializing in the treatment of MS, will discuss “Changing the Future: Emerging Therapies.” They will detail the landscape of MS therapies and approaches to care, particularly in light of the development of new oral medications.
The other weekly topics include “Making It Work–Spasticity” on April 1, “Pain Management” on April 8, and “Depression and MS” on April 15.
Each Thursday program will be held at the Stony Brook Neurology Outpatient Offices at 179 Belle Mead Road in Setauket.
