MS Connect Conference to Bring Together the MS Community and Researchers Virtually on November 23 to 28
MS Connect conferences are held annually across the country allowing people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) to hear about the most recent updates in MS research. This year, the MS Society of Canada is hosting MS Connect online where attendees can tune in for free in the comfort of their own homes.
The event is set to take place on November 23 to 28 featuring presentations from leading MS researchers on topics such as the future of MS research, neurorehabilitation, cognition, nutrition and fatigue. Attendees are also given the opportunity to engage with experts and vendors to learn about the latest equipment and services available to help manage their MS.
This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Jack Antel, a clinical neurologist who coordinates the MS research and treatment programme at the Montreal Neurological Institute and a Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University. His research program focuses on understanding the mechanisms of tissue injury and repair that account for the characteristic disease course of MS and how these can be therapeutically targeted. Dr. Antel will be discussing the future of MS research both nationally and globally at MS Connect.
