Programs and Services offered by MSEO
It is the goal of the Multiple Sclerosis Encouragement Organization to offer programs and services that benefit not only the MS Patient but their families and caregivers as well. We always welcome input from our members as to what types of programs and services they would like to see offered
Currently the programs and services that we are offering are as follows:
- Encouragement Groups: Encouragement Groups are where members can get together for an educational meeting. The meetings are usually held at a restaurant and we are fortunate to have a sponsor for each meeting which gives us the opportunity to hear from and ask questions of a Medical Professional. To find an Encouragement Group near you please click here: GROUPS and select your state of interest.
