World MS Day goes off with a bang in the Indian capital, New Delhi

A week long awareness program was held to mark World MS Day 2010 in Delhi. Guests and supporters were many and participated in activities that took place throughout this special week. VIP guests included Mr Roshan Seth (Actor), Mr Jattinn Kochhar (Fashion designer), and Colonel Kapil Dev (a well known cricketer).

Medical awareness week took place at six locations in Delhi and attracted many people with MS who took advantage of the opportunity to have a free health check and to have their questions answered by a team of neurology experts. Several new diagnoses of MS were also made through these free services.

To end the weeks activities a closing ceremony took place on the 26th May. Guests were invited to hear music from the well known one hundred strong Territorial Army Symphony Orchestra who regaled guests with folk music, well known bollywood classics, and the national anthem.

On the 2nd of June a session to discuss new research and treatments was organised at medanta medicity and on the 4th June a press conference was held to highlight new treatments and the effects that they are having on people with MS.
