Mellen Center Update in Multiple Sclerosis (MS)


We will review wellness topics including rehabilitation approaches to maintaining sense of self and working on motor learning and plasticity. We also address wellness and sexuality for people with MS. Multidisciplinary approaches to MS at different states of life will be discussed. In terms of innovation we will review new diagnostic criteria, new MS treatments, technologies and guidelines affecting MS care. We will also add a ‘Neuro Jeopardy’ session this year.

Our keynote speaker is nationally known Dr. Michael Roizen from our Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic. He will kick off our first theme of ‘wellness’ in this year’s symposium. The second theme will be ‘innovation’. Many of our talks or discussions will focus on one of both of these themes this year
