April 2007—In order to facilitate an international movement which will lead to a world free of multiple sclerosis, it is essential for all those impacted by the effects of MS to join together. This has led to the recent establishment of the Multiple Sclerosis Coalition, an affiliation of independent MS organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life for all those affected by multiple sclerosis.
The Coalition's mission is to increase opportunities for collaboration among the network of independent MS organizations and through this collaboration enhance MS education, advocacy and overall organizational efficiencies.
In addition to the Society, core membership in the MS Coalition includes:
The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers
Multiple Sclerosis Association of America
Multiple Sclerosis Foundation
Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis
Montgomery Multiple Sclerosis Center
MS Helping Hands
Valdosta MS Support Group
Vision Works Foundation
