Educational Events 2019

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of SA and NT strives to promote social inclusion, community participation, health and wellness education, friendship, and fun for people with MS with a number of ‘come and try’ activities, and information and education sessions on offer throughout the year.

Whether you are newly diagnosed and looking for information about the supports available to you, or looking for ways to live well with your MS, we have a range of education sessions available to you. The MS Society has also been fortunate to receive funding from Grants SA to provide some special 'come and try' experiences for our members. Costs to participate are subsidised by the grant.

The 2019 program details are updated regularly, so please check back often. Registration is essential. Confirmation letters are provided 1-2 weeks before each seminar or workshop. If you do not receive a confirmation for a session you plan to attend, please notify MS Assist on 1800 812 311 or email msassist@ms.asn.au. Please ensure you check details when registering.
