Just one more week to go until World MS Day 2018!
World MS Day is one of our favourite dates in calendar. It's a time when people around the globe - whether they're doctors, MS nurses, students, or those living with MS - can come together and talk about multiple sclerosis (MS).
For 2018, under the banner #BringingUsCloser, the World MS Day campaign on 30 May is putting MS research underneath the spotlight.
Here's what we'll be doing on the run up to and on the day so you can get involved in the action...
1. Sarah-Jane Twitter takeover!
For one day only, Sarah-Jane, the editor of our New Pathways magazine, will be taking over Twitter for a very special Q and A! If you have any burning questions you need to get off your chest - whether it's about recent medical developments in the world of MS, MS studies or research, or complementary therapies - then join us on Twitter on 30 May and make sure to tag us @MSUK6.
2. Sharing stories from the MS community
Gather around the (digital) campfire! We want to hear stories of your experiences with complementary therapies and MS research. Has cannabis helped ease your symptoms? Do you follow a diet that you'd love to recommend? Perhaps you were involved in a research trial and want to share what you've learned with the world? Let us know! Email Callum with your tales and we'll feature you in our special World MS Day blog!
3. Blogs galore!
We've planned a series of special blogs to coincide with World MS Day 2018! Throughout the week and on the day itself, we'll be posting about the latest developments in MS research and showing you how to get involved. Keep your eyes peeled on the MS-UK blog pages so you don't miss out!
4. World MS Day...the movie
Armed with a camera and supported by a rising actress/willing member of the MS-UK team, we've channeled our inner Spielberg to create a one-off World MS Day video! Production is currently under tight-wraps (so no spoilers) but we can't wait to show you the finished product!
