MS 101 is a free 2-hour class for the newly-diagnosed (anyone who has been diagnosed in the last 5 years) in a small-group setting that allows for a frank discussion tailored specifically to the day’s attendees. The presenters go over the basics of MS, how our understanding of the disease has changed over the years, and what we know today.

You are encouraged to bring your questions to the table. Topics will range from “what is MS?” to the diagnosis process, the symptoms, an overview of available treatment options, and what you can do daily to maximize your wellbeing.

If you were diagnosed more than 5 years ago or you’re interested in learning more about MS for another reason (for example, if you work closely with someone with MS and you would like to better understand the disease), please contact Kelsey at 303-788-4030, ext. 120 to discuss our other class options.

Family and friends are welcome at the class, but please let us know how many people will be with you when you sign up.

These classes are offered three times a month via Zoom: the first Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m., the third Friday of the month at 1:00 p.m., and the fourth Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m.

MS 101 sessions are led by Elissa Berlinger, LCSW and MS Educator, and Kelsey Morrow, RMMSC Education Manager.


MS 101 is free, but space is limited to maintain the small group format. Advanced registration is required.
