MS group gets grant

Saturday, March 15, 2003

The Curry General Hospital Multiple Sclerosis Support Group received $1,000 in grant funding recently from Teva Neuroscience, makers of the medication Copaxone.

The group plans to use the money to implement upcoming activities that will be offered free or at a minimal cost to MS patients, their families and caretakers. Activities might include t'ai chi or yoga, cooking lessons, pottery, aquatic workouts, shopping trips and dining out.

Comments are sought from all Curry County MS patients and their caretakers interested in participating in any group activities. The support group meets at 10 a.m. every second Thursday in the hospital conference room. Meetings feature informative speakers, medical staff and other educational programs.

For more information, those interested can call Pat and Jack Oden in Brookings at (541) 469-9864; in Gold Beach, Lois Collum at 247-0880; or the Curry General Hospital community relations office, 247-3187.
