Q and A with Dr Gretchen Hawley

Monday 19 July at 2pm

Do you ever wonder if you’re doing the appropriate exercises to help you reach your goals? Or maybe you’re wondering if improving your strength and mobility is even possible with a progressive condition like MS?

Please join us for a question and answer session, live with Dr Gretchen Hawley where you will be able to ask questions for all things related to MS on physical therapy and exercise.

The session will be an open format that will allow those attending to ask questions on the subject areas we have already covered in our previous information sessions (neuroplasticity, fatigue management, spasticity etc) that you may want to hear more about or on other topic areas that you would like to have answered.

Whilst the session is an open format, if you have questions you know you would like to be answered, then please do send them in advance of the session so Gretchen can best prepare responses to your questions. Please send your questions to us no later than Friday 16 July to register@ms-uk.org.

There is no agenda for this session and it will be a great opportunity for people attending to get the answers to questions from a true MS specialist. These maybe questions that they have always wanted to ask and maybe not had the opportunity or to simply gain a better understanding on topics that have conflicting information that you would like to have clarification on. So please do join us and we look forward to welcoming you to the session!

There is a suggested donation is £5 for this information session, but you can make a donation of your choosing from £1 to attend. 

If you are having trouble registering or would like to know more about this information session, please contact us at register@ms-uk.org

“Just a note to say how inspiring I found this presentation to be. Having had MS for approx 30 years. I must admit to feeling fairly sceptical that I would hear anything new. In fact, it wasn’t so much that this was all definitely new, but it was the way it was conveyed to people like me. I think it took away a continual feeling of failure and replaced it with a new mindset.” – Chris 

“A really excellent presentation. Incredibly informative and made so much sense.” - Participant 

“I thought yesterday's presentation was fantastic. The Dr was inspiring and enlightened me to things I've being doing not quite right for years. I certainly took a lot away from it and thoroughly enjoyed listening.” – Pam 

“Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated Gretchen's talk on neuroplasticity this week.  I had rather given up on exercise as not really helping me (I am in my 70's) but Gretchen's advice has motivated me to try again and try better. So, I am resuming my exercises and paying more attention to carrying them out correctly.  She was spot on about the need to change one's mindset too. I do equate walking with fatigue and difficulty and should endeavour to get out of this negative thinking cycle.” – Participant
