On Friday 20th May, MS Care’s World MS Day celebrations will take place at the Canadian International College in Cairo.

Various activities will be taking place, including seminars, screening of WMSD movies and a presentation about the work of MS Care. Medical practitioners have been invited to attend, including Professor of Neurology Prof. Dr. Tarek El Menesi who has been invited to talk about recent developments in treatments. Professor of Interventional Radiology Prof. Dr. Ahmed Samy will also be talking about the pros and cons of CCVI treatment, and patients who have undergone this procedure will be encouraged to share their experiences. Buses have been arranged to pick up patients from two different locations in the city, and cars have been arranged to pick up patients who use wheelchairs, to ensure that all patients who wish to are able to attend.

In keeping with the WMSD theme of work, patients are encouraged to bring their employers to the event, and to take part in discussions about the difficulties people with MS face in the work place. The event is not being sponsored, and so MS Care are encouraging their members to provide the refreshments – they are expecting lots of delicious home baked cakes and cookies!
On 25th May MS Care will be talking to Dream Morning about their work, and particularly World MS Day and employment.
