I organized an MS Total health fair on Dec 5th, and it went as well as I could have wished for.
Except for the attorneys that spoke about protecting your assets when hit with chronic disease, all of the topics were alternative medicine, non drug company focused.
The evaluations I received were incredibly positive. Just shows the hunger for education the MS community has.
It looks like it will be a yearly event.
For those of you in the Chicagoland area, there is a small chain of stores called "Marbles" (as in losing them). The store's product line is based on the concept of neuroplasticity, and have different games that address various deficits that MS folks may face at one time or another. All in all it was a great day, very interactive, high energy. I slept days afterward, but it was a peaceful satisfied sleep.
If anyone wants to pull a similar program off in your area, I can send you the steps involved...
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle..
