Education sessions

Education sessions

We run a range of different education sessions and workshops across the year, to give you the tools and resources you need to manage your MS.

No one knows your MS better than you, and that’s why we want to hear from you about what you’d like to see on our 2020 service calendar! Help us out by letting us know:

  • if you are interested in attending any of these sessions
  • where you would like us to hold these sessions
  • what topics you would like to learn more about.

Send us your suggestions and interest for the 2020 service calendar at msassist@ms.asn.au or call 08 7002 6500
