School Hosts Can Do Multiple Sclerosis Seminar

The University of South Florida (USF) Health and the School of Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Sciences were pleased to host a program for people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and their caregivers on Saturday, May 7, 2022 with Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, a national nonprofit organization that delivers health and wellness education programs to help people living with MS. Can Do MS staff member, Rosalind Kalb, lead the discussions along with Dr. Derrick Robertson and Lise Cassady, ARNP of the USF MS Comprehensive Care Center and Jeannie Stephenson of the School of Physical Therapy & Rehab Sciences.

The program was geared toward people living with MS and their families. The Saturday program was about “Managing Invisible Symptoms” in which people with MS learned how to manage symptoms like fatigue, cognitive challenges, or pain. The Saturday program also had separate breakout sessions for individuals with MS and their support partners, so each could each speak about their challenges living with MS.”
