Welcome to MS-UK’s magazine for people with MS. We believe it’s completely possible to live life to the full with MS and our readers regularly write in to tell us how they do it!
New Pathways is our bi-monthly magazine. Available in print, audio version, large print and digitally via the My MS-UK app, New Pathways is full of the latest MS news regarding trials, drug development and research as well as competitions, special offers and product reviews.
We also like to share your stories and experiences of living with MS. The magazine offers you the opportunity to reach out to thousands of other people living with MS. If you’re looking for support or even have a question, New Pathways readers will be there to offer their advice, experience and support.
We also know that knowledge is power and in a bid to help you take control of your condition we offer a variety of articles each issue, which address a variety of subjects from exercise and diet, to symptoms and cannabis use to name a few. More importantly, there are no taboo subjects: if the subject is important to you we will explore it.
