The 2023 webinar series, ‘Finding Hope with Overcoming MS - series 4’, featured experts from around the world covering a range of topics on how to live well with MS. It played a crucial role in bringing together our global community, giving them the tools to live well with MS.
Over the year, an incredible 3,773 people from across 61 countries registered to watch our webinars.
We hosted a range of guests, who delved into important aspects of living well with MS. We heard from Dr Veronique Gauthier-Simmons about accessible movement and Dr Phil Startin about mindfulness for stress management. We held 'Ask the Expert' sessions with award-winning neurologist, Dr Aaron Boster and nutritional therapist, Sam Josephs, allowing our community to ask those important questions about the Overcoming MS Program.
Brett Drummond from MSTranslate presented the latest MS research from the 2023 ECTRIMS/ACTRIMS conference. We celebrated our wonderful volunteers with a special webinar during Volunteers Week.
In July, we broke webinar records with over 1100 people registering for our 'Ask George' webinar, enabling the community to connect, share and learn with Professor George Jelinek, the founder of the Overcoming MS Program.

“This has been so helpful and I have been following the Overcoming MS Program for 9 years!”
