Multiple Sclerosis Program

Overview

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) has been recognized as one of the most debilitating neurological disorders typically affecting patients between ages 20-60. Since its inception in 2009, the Multiple SclerosisProgram has played an instrumental role in providing various levels of education as well as state-of-the-art evaluation, diagnosis and implementation of advanced treatment modalities for multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitisoptica (Devic’s disease) and other complex neuroimmunological disorders.

The Multiple Sclerosis program involves community neurologists, and focuses on the medical treatment of the disease, management of symptoms, promoting mobility of patients with physical impairments, minimizing secondary complications, maximizing independence, improving quality of life, coping with psychological implications and providing education to patients and their families.

The nurse navigator for the program is Sheena Dhiman, BSN, MBA.
