MS Forum Open Discussion
We plan to continue this yearly event which is held in conjunction with Clay Walker and his organization Band Against MS, Inc. (BAMS). Past events included wide ranging discussions of a variety of topics in a lively and interactive format, moderated by Clay Walker. Most of the discussion is based on questions submitted by the audience members. This event is typically held in October, but the date for 2018 has not been set. Please check the BandAgainstMS Facebook page for developing information.
There are multiple Bike MS bicycle tours around the country, with 3 in Texas. These events are a major source of funding for the National MS Society, and are critical in maintaining the education and research programs of the NMSS. The largest event is the MS150 Houston to Austin ride, which is held on a weekend in April. We encourage you to ride or to support someone who is riding. The dates for 2019 will be announced in the late fall. Check the Bike MS website for more information.
Annual Patient Education Day
The UT Annual Patient Education Day is scheduled for March 9, 2019 at the Cooley Conference Center. This year, we will have talks on a variety of topics from each member of the UT Multiple Sclerosis Research Group. The talks are intended for a general audience, including people with MS or anyone who wants to learn about MS. If you have a topic you would like to hear discussed, please contact Brandi Carrico. The full schedule with times and topics for all the talks will be posted in February 2019.
