Thinking About Getting Involved?
WHY YOUR INVOLVEMENT MATTERS
As caregivers for someone with MS, we have real-life experience that can inform and benefit scientific research.
As more of us share that information, the depth and breadth of this knowledge grows, making it possible to ask more relevant questions and design and conduct better studies to answer them. Sharing your lived experience as a caregiver can help the entire MS community work toward solutions for everyday challenges and long-term effects of MS.
