The International Organization of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses (IOMSN) is excited to present a program for this year called IOMSN Town Hall Discussions. This program is designed to continue to fulfill the mission of the IOMSN through regular outreach to its membership. The goal of this program is to have a dialogue with MS nurses in large and small MS practices and to sustain their dedication to the fight against MS.
Each month we will be hosting a telephone discussion led by an IOMSN member that will last approximately 15 minutes to be followed by a robust discussion. Each Town Hall session will last no more than one hour and occur on the 3rd Tuesday evening of every month starting at 8pm ET (7pm CT, 6pm MT, 5pm PT).
To join, simply dial
Open to All North American Nurses
For more information, please call 201-487-1050.
This program is supported by an educational grant from Biogen Idec.
Discussion will start at 8:00 pm ET, please call / log-in 10 minutes early.
