International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice Recognized as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care by the National MS Society
A prestigious recognition, the National MS Society awards this title to a handful of healthcare providers each year
New York, NY - November 23, 2020 - The International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice, a leading provider of care for people living with multiple sclerosis has been distinguished as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care through the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Partners in MS Care program, which recognizes and supports providers that exemplify an exceptional commitment to high-quality MS care. Located in New York, NY, the International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice’s clinicians continually demonstrate a wealth of knowledge, experience and the important attention to detail necessary in treating people living with MS.
MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis, and no two individuals will experience the disease in the same way. Due to the complexity of the disease, patients with MS are often a medically underserved community and finding healthcare providers able to treat their disease can be difficult. To help combat this, the National MS Society created its Partners in MS Care program to call attention to committed providers, like the International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice, that continually offers services in alignment with the Society’s initiative of affordable access to high-quality MS healthcare for everyone living with the disease – regardless of geography, disease progression, and other disparities. A Comprehensive MS Care Center distinction is appointed by a local and national committee, and the organization must demonstrate a coordinated, multi-disciplinary care for MS.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms vary from person to person and range from numbness and tingling, to walking difficulties, fatigue, dizziness, pain, depression, blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. A recent study led by the National MS Society estimates that nearly 1 million people are living with MS in the United States; twice as many than previously thought.

Last year, the Society invested $35 million in MS research with more than 340 active projects around the world. Through its comprehensive nationwide network of services, the Society is focused on helping those affected by MS connect to the people, information and resources needed to live their best lives. We are united in our collective power to do something about MS now and end this disease forever. Learn more at nationalMSsociety.org.
