Living Well with MS is an extraordinary program that was originally designed to help those living with a recent diagnosis better understand multiple sclerosis and develop lifestyle strategies that can help diminish the effects of the disease. This 12-week online wellness class is now open to all who want to explore what they can do to positively impact their personal well-being.

The Living Well Experience provides fun and interactive activities that let you try out new strategies while exploring topics like fatigue, stress management, employment & careers, relationships, and more!  Discussions connect you with others—just like you—where you can share experiences and learn first hand from each other.

Each week, the class offers information that can help you:

  • Better manage MS and its symptoms
  • Develop healthy eating habits and understand the role nutrition plays in MS
  • Integrate a comprehensive approach to exercise into your personal fitness plan
  • Develop positive emotional and spiritual health practices to use across your lifetime.

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been living well with MS for several years, discover what you can do to enhance the manageability of your disease and integrate healthy lifestyle practices in your everyday life.
