I’m back from my writing break and excited to share what I’ve been up to. I can’t wait to tell you about our vacation in the picturesque Finger Lakes region of New York, and then my travels to Indianapolis for the annual meeting of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC). In between I also tried some new products that I know will be of interest to my disability and midlife readers.
I thought the best way to begin my journey back would be to give you a brief synopsis of why I went to Indianapolis, because by now you’re probably asking yourself, “What is CMSC? Why did she go?”
I was more than thrilled when June Halper, CEO of CMSC, asked me to be CMSC’s first blogger! I was excited at the prospect of being part of the press corps on behalf of CMSC. As a patient I was happy to have a unique opportunity to speak with so many dedicated medical professionals who are my rock stars. In my work I read about them every day.
What is CMSC? There isn’t a simple answer to this because the mission, goals and activities of this pre-eminent MS organization would fill an entire blog post. And then some. So let me start by handing the reins over to the CMSC website to explain their history. Then you’ll have a general idea of who they are and why they are so important to the MS community:
That is the (very) short answer of who they are. Over the next few weeks I’ll be writing separate posts about the different talks and experiences I had in Indianapolis. Get ready to be fascinated.
I heard content that included the relationship between cannibis and cognitive dysfunction, approaches to psychotherapy, cognitive rehabilitation, dance therapy and robotics. There is something of interest for everyone.
In between these posts I’ll be writing about other topics that I mentioned above. I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
It’s good to be back in the saddle again. My fingers missed typing on a keyboard, and I missed interacting with you. So here we go! Thanks for waiting for me.
