On April 5, OMRF will host a special conference, “Women Treating Women: The MS Connection,” for female patients and families affected by multiple sclerosis. The forum will present a unique opportunity to recognize the contributions of women physicians in caring for patients with chronic diseases.
“Together, we will discuss new treatment options and hear from a multi-disciplinary panel on specific problems related to MS,” said conference organizer Dr. Farhat Husain, a neurologist at OMRF’s Multiple Sclerosis Center of Excellence.
Featured speaker is Dr. Anne Cross, the Manny and Rosalyn Rosenthal/Dr. John Trotter MS Center Chair in Neuroimmunology and professor of neurology at Washington University at St. Louis.
Other speakers and panelists include Drs. Tania Reyna and Phebe Tucker from the University of Oklahoma Medical Center, physical therapists and case managers.
The event was made possible by a grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s MS Entrepreneurs program with support from the Kanaly Foundation.
Space is limited to 80 attendees. Participation is free, but registration is required. OMRF is located at 825 NE 13th Street in Oklahoma City. The conference starts at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 2:00 p.m. To register, visit www.omrf.org/MSconnection.
