2014 Annual Meeting Presentations
Share |
Welcome to the 2014 Cooperative Meeting of the Consortium of MS Centers (CMSC) and  Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS). Our 2014 meeting marks the 28th Annual Meeting of CMSC and the 19th Annual Meeting of ACTRIMS. CMSC’s and ACTRIMS’ collaborative efforts, extending now into our sixth year, yield the largest North American meeting with a sole focus on multiple sclerosis.

The field of multiple sclerosis is dynamic, evolving, challenging yet rewarding. The variable course, symptoms, emotional implications, and therapeutic requirements of multiple sclerosis necessitate broad-based and dynamic models of care and research. The Annual Meeting is designed to provide clinicians and researchers with the latest information on the science of MS and the clinical tools and knowledge to enhance MS care. Our agenda will feature leading national and international MS experts who represent the best in clinical care and research.

This year’s meeting provides learners with the latest information about the immunology, genetics, biomarkers, epidemiology, and pathophysiology of the disease. Symposia, workshops and clinical courses will focus on healthcare provider roles and include topics on basic and advanced fundamentals of MS diagnosis and care, new and advanced concepts in technology, and symptomatic and rehabilitative care.
