As a woman with multiple sclerosis, would you like to:

Share your successes and learn new ways of coping from other women?

If so, you may want to register today for the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter's upcoming educational retreat for women entitled, "Taking Charge," on Wednesday, June 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The free program features a variety of workshop sessions including Spirituality and Humor: The Underestimated Healing; Finding Your Health Self; A New Look at Stress Management, and a luncheon complete with round table discussions.

“MS is twice as common in women as in men and there are noticeable differences in the way women and men experience MS symptoms, severity and disease patterns,” says Stephanie Schultze of the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter’s programs department. “Seminars like this help address these differences, as well as connect women with one another, which is empowering and fulfilling.”

If you have questions about this exciting program or would like to register, please contact Jeanette Smith at or call her at 800-548-4611 today.
