What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system, for which there is currently no cure. Symptoms vary from person to person and may include disabling fatigue, mobility challenges, cognitive changes, and vision issues. An estimated one million people live with MS in the United States.
The MS Day Program was founded in the early 1990’s with funding from United Support Against Multiple Sclerosis (USAMS) and the staff and facilities of the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopedic Institute. The MS Day Program relocated to The League for People with Disabilities in 2018 and continues to be generously funded by USAMS.
