Recovery from MS is possible. You know it because you or someone you love has seen great benefits from following the 7-Step OMS Recovery Program. But getting, and staying, on the path to recovery can be hard. To succeed, people new to OMS need support, guidance and encouragement. That’s where OMS Ambassadors come into the picture. OMS Ambassadors raise awareness in general about OMS in their local MS community and guide those new to OMS on their journey. However, everything centers on the OMS Circle which Ambassadors built in their local area.
What is an OMS Circle?
An OMS Circle is a community of people who share a belief in making positive changes to their diets and lifestyles to achieve a better and healthier life with MS. They meet regularly for events and outings, answer each other’s questions, and act as a source of support and encouragement for each other, in good and not-so-good times. OMS Ambassadors serve both as members and leaders of the group. Find your nearest OMS Circle here.
