Program on multiple sclerosis at library

The advances in the care and treatment of people with multiple sclerosis since 1993 have been remarkable, according to medical officials.

People living with MS now have more tools available to them than ever before, including disease-modifying treatments, symptom management strategies and lifestyle-related options that can improve quality of life, they said.

To learn more about these tools and options, a program on MS will be presented from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 20, at the Watauga County Public Library, 140 Queen St.,  Boone. The educational program is titled "Making Treatment & Lifestyle Decisions: Thinking About Benefits & Risks."

Dr. Lee Kennedy will be available after the video to answer questions. Kennedy is a neurologist at High Country Neurology in Boone

 Attendees will also receive a program booklet with an overview of the various factors that often complicate medical decision-making, as well as the variety of choices available for people living with MS to treat their disease so they can maintain their best quality of life.

A light lunch will be provided. To register or for more information, call (800) 344-4867, option 1.
