Highlights from the 2012 MS Brain Symposium

You are invited to participate in a special meeting of stakeholders from around the world who are dedicated to finding and promoting innovative approaches to best care, research and practice for those living with multiple sclerosis (MS).

We look forward to welcoming you to Hartford, Connecticut on October 27 – 29, 2016 for the 2016 International Symposium: The Multiple Sclerosis Brain – Bridging the Gap. This year’s symposium theme of “Bridging the Gap” brings together an international group of leading MS researchers, clinicians, patients and other interested professionals to discuss how to bridge the gap between research and clinical applications in the areas of rehabilitation, epidemiology, gut microbiome and complementary and alternative medicine. This year we will also have a special unveiling of artwork designed by the international artist and activist Lydia Emily Archibald, commissioned for the Mandell Center for Multiple Sclerosis.
