In the Pacific Northwest, the prevalence of Multiple Sclerosis is about three times higher than the lower part of the U.S. and much higher than elsewhere in the world. Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable disease that can impact all areas of people lives. According to the Greater Northwest Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, in King County alone there are 9,000 known patients.

A free event, “MS Exchange: Live Event A place to discuss, learn, and interact,” will be held on Saturday, October 15 for the Multiple Sclerosis community at the Hilton Seattle Airport & Conference Center at 10:30am. Attendees will hear from doctors and patients about living with the disease. Speakers will also be available to answer questions related to the disease that is so often misunderstood.

Free parking and lunch will be provided at the event.
