On Saturday 25 March, the local MS society branches hosted a Living Better day for people who have been given a diagnosis of MS in the past four years.

The aim of the day was to provide people with information so they can ' self-optimise' themselves and take positive ownership of their health and life. 

Representatives from the MS Society, NHS and NDCN provided their expertise and facilitated some of the talks, which included sessions on exercise and diet.

The keynote speaker for day was Dr Gabriele De Luca, Consultant Neurologist. Research Nurse Ana Cavey facilitated the talk on Work and Employment with NDCN’s HR Officer Kathryn Archbold.
