The Human Collective Project (HCP) is TSF’s support group meetings offered to anyone who has been affected/impacted by NMOSD/MOGAD. The program came into existence during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 when most NMOSD/MOGAD felt particularly isolated and vulnerable to the coronavirus as immunosuppressed/immunocompromised members of society. The isolation many of us experienced unveiled a great need and opportunity for us to connect in a meaningful way to offer our support to one another.
Since launching in 2020, we have expanded the program to offer more sessions and in multiple geographies to ensure that everyone in the NMOSD/MOGAD communities feel welcomed and included. As we always say, HCP is a great way to meet others in similar circumstances in this rare community; it is a safe space to laugh, cry, vent, share wins, etc. This program is driven and led by TSF Patient and Caregiver Ambassadors around the world.
