​World MS Day videos now available!

5th July 2018

For those who couldn’t make it to our World MS Day event held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, recordings of our two fantastic speaker presentations are now available on the MS Society SA/NT YouTube channel!

We understand that many of our MS members couldn’t make it to Adelaide on World MS Day, and we didn’t want any of you to miss out on the valuable knowledge and advice our speakers had to share with our MS members.

Opening and closing the event, was our key speaker Sally Shaw, a psychologist with a focus on MS. Living with MS herself, she was able to use her unique skill set of a mix of psychological expertise and lived experience to give our MS members a practical and relatable approach to living well with MS. Based on the MS International Federation’s Quality of Life Principles she gave our audience advice on stress management, mindfulness and more.

Our second speaker, Ingrid van der Mei is the Managing Director of the Australian MS Longitudinal Study at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research. With a focus on brain health, Ingrid spoke to us about research in this area and provided evidence to support the six steps to brain health as outlined in MS Brain Health’s report. She also discussed employment, MS in relation to other diseases, and the future of MS research in Australia.

The MS Society SA/NT would like to thank both Sally and Ingrid for sharing World MS Day with our MS members, and sharing their insights and expertise into MS research and wellness.
