Championing Tomorrow’s MS Research Leaders
Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world. This unpredictable, and often disabling disease, affects women three times more than men. The onset of MS is most often between the ages of 15 and 40; a time in life when people are engaged in furthering their education, building their careers, raising their children and working towards their dreams.
The MS Society of Canada is committed to providing education and networking programs that enage the country’s brightest scientific minds. These opportunities are essential in preparing the next generation of researchers to take on the challenges of discovering a cure. Sparking curiosity in solving the mysteries of multiple sclerosis today will ensure talented researchers are dedicated to fighting this disease in the future.
All funds raised through the 2019 WAMS Gala Luncheon in Saskatchewan will support the endMS Research and Training Network’s Scholar Program for Researchers IN Training (SPRINT) and endMS Summer School to be held in Saskatoon within the next two years.
