It covers a wide range of topics in an accessible question and answer format that allows people to easily find the information they need.
Within each section, MS experts including neurologists, nurses, rehabilitation and mental health professionals, lawyers, and insurance and employment experts, answer the questions they have been asked most frequently over the course of their careers. Each chapter is designed to cover the full spectrum of the disease—from the time of diagnosis through the complex challenges that can arise if the disease progresses.
