Welcome to the North American Education Program: Resilience: Addressing the Challenges of MS, brought to you by the National MS Society in partnership with the MS Society of Canada. People with multiple sclerosis may find that the physical, emotional, cognitive, psychological and spiritual challenges of living with the disease can be overwhelming. Some may feel that the challenges of living with a chronic disease are very hard to face day after day. But many people living with chronic diseases, including MS, have learned that practicing behaviors which promote resilience is the secret to not just coping with the disease but thriving with it. Resilience helps create a mindset of growth and opportunities, of seeing the obstacles as challenges rather than threats.

Participants will share experiences while watching a DVD and taking part in the discussion.

5:30 pm to 8:30 pm for dinner and session.
