MS Research Day 2016

MS Research Day 2016

On 8th October, the MS Society along with researchers from the University of Nottingham had the pleasure of hosting a Nottingham Multiple Sclerosis Research Day. The meeting took place on University campus and gave the patients and carers a chance to hear about the latest multiple sclerosis research and an opportunity to ask doctors, nurses and psychologists questions about the disease. The talks focused on a variety of MS related topics including:

  • MRI research update by Dr. Nikos Evangelou
  • Drugs research by Prof. Cris Constantinescu
  • Psychology research by Dr Roshan de Nair

The programme also featured three afternoon workshops:

  • Mindfulness, Medication Management and Fatigue led by MS specialist nurse Kate Hartley
  • Lifestyle and MS: current evidence for what can make a difference led by Dr. Bruno Gran
  • Mindfulness: an introduction to how mindfulness can help with MS by Sarah White, an advanced practitioner, physiotherapist and mindfulness teacher

There was also a drop-in session for patients and a carers support group session led by Doug Fletcher, the chair of the local MS Society branch.

The day was definitely a success and we all look forward to our next MS Day!
