To celebrate NMO Awareness Month 2024, The Sumaira Foundation invites you to join an insightful discussion about an important topic: Family Planning.

Join us on March 1st for a live webinar featuring Dr. Ahmed Shatila who will share myths & facts about family planning in people living with NMOSD & other rare neuro-immunological conditions. Dr. Shatila will discuss contraception and other factors that are important for people to plan with their neurologists and obstetricians. He will talk about the implications of a relapse before or during pregnancy and how to approach certain scenarios. Dr Shatila will outline the benefits and risks of several medications and options for treatment scheduling, symptom management, and MRI preparation. Finally, we’ll conclude with discussing the considerations for labor and breastfeeding.

This meeting will be conducted in English with Arabic subtitles. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Shatila questions in real time. This webinar will be recorded and made available on TSF’s YouTube channel and global website.
