MS Experts Want Your Questions on Engaging Life with MS

2/19/2010

Since your MS diagnosis, have you been afraid to try new activities? Have you withdrawn and become isolated? Want to break out of that same old routine but don’t know how? Too often the psychological aspects of life with MS are ignored and it can be difficult to know where to turn. Two experts on the topic have offered to answer your questions in a national teleconference hosted by the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

"Outside the Comfort Zone: Staying Open to Change and New Experiences” will be the topic of a teleconference from 8 to 9 p.m. (EST) Thursday, March 25th. Panelists include:

Lara Stepleman, Ph.D., licensed psychologist and an associate professor of psychiatry and health behavior at the Medical College of Georgia at the Augusta MS Center. She is the director of the psychological services program, which focuses on emotional wellness and quality of life for patients of the center and their loved ones.

Yvette Rojas, executive director of the Louisville Comprehensive Care MS Center in Kentucky. She has been living with MS for more than 20 years.
