2018 Ohio PA Olympics for MS

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord.  More than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide.   Recent research indicates that people with MS live an average of about 7 years less than the general population.  Because symptoms come and go, MS is not always easily diagnosed.  The cause of MS still remains unknown and ongoing research continues.  As future Physician Assistants, we will all soon be caring for patients with MS. For more information regarding MS please visit nationalMSsociety.org

Facts about MS:
-          MS is more common in females than males

-          MS is most commonly diagnosed in people between the ages of 20 and 50 years

-          The cause of MS is still unknown

-          There is a greater prevalence of MS in higher northern and southern latitudes

-          In MS, the persons immune system attacks the central nervous system and damages the protective layer of the nerves

Each year, the National MS Society is able to fund critical research and programs and services that truly make a difference in the lives of people affected by MS.  Your donations will greatly contribute to National MS Society’s drive to further enhance research and help those with MS.
