Health care program recognized for work treating MS | Business
During March, which is multiple sclerosis awareness month, an area health care program is recognized by a national group for its services related to treating the disease.
The Dean Multiple Sclerosis Program, which is housed within the Dean Neurological Institute & Spine Center, was recognized as a center for comprehensive MS care through the National MS Society's Partners in MS Care program. The recognition is part of a push for access to an array of medical, psycho-social and rehabilitation services to address the varied and often complex issues related to living with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system.
The recognition honors Dean's coordinated, comprehensive MS care and a continuing partnership with the National MS Society to address the challenges of people affected by MS.
As part of the recognition, NMSS professionals and trained volunteers will be on hand at the center twice a month to share information on chapter programs, services and events.
