The Human Collective Project (HCP) is TSF’s support group meeting offered to anyone who has been affected/impacted by NMOSD/MOG-AD. The program came into existence during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, when most NMOSD/MOG-AD 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 2020, we have expanded the program to offer more sessions in multiple geographies to ensure that everyone in the NMOSD/MOG-AD communities feels 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 worldwide.
