Health Care Professionals Event

Neurological Information Day For Health Care Professionals

Join us for a day of information in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Ennis Road, Limerick on Friday the 20th September 2019 from 9.00am - 4.00pm. The conference theme this year is 'My invisible MS'. One of the many challenges for people with MS can be the array of invisible symptoms they can experience. With invisible symptoms you must constantly adjust to the differences between how you look on the “outside” and how you feel “inside” and how the world reacts to you when you “look so good.” MS has many faces and can require varied responses. To understand MS you need to become familiar with the many faces of MS which greet you so you can, together with the person with MS, have the best possible plan.
