The National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) is offering a free accredited program for neurologic care providers whose patients include those diagnosed with MS.

NMSS developed ECHO MS to improve health outcomes for people affected by MS. Joining the webinar series fosters lasting connections among neurologists caring for patients with MS.

Each ECHO MS: Care Essentials session has a short didactic and two patient case discussions – colleagues share insights and build consensus cases presented! Participants attend one of four ECHO MS Hubs for 12, one-hour sessions and earn 12 CME (free). Sessions are offered during the lunch hour in four time zones (Pacific, Mountain, Central, Eastern) and meet on weekdays twice a month. The next cohort is from Sept 2023-March 2024.
