There are a number of different autoimmune disorders with similar features to Multiple Sclerosis (MS), such as neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) and myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody disorder (MOGAD).
These diseases share striking similarities that ultimately affect the way in which our communities understand and manage the diagnosis. Hence, it is of utmost importance for young people with MS to learn more about them as well as connect with the communities as they share similar experiences and questions for the future.
The webinar will focus on:
– Sharing Knowledge, where Dr. Sara Mariotto will introduce NMOSD & MOGAD as well as describe the similarities and differences between MS, NMOSD & MOGAD from an expert perspective.
– Sharing Experiences, where Sumaira Ahmed will share her own NMOSD story and how she built communities of support for patients and their caregivers by developing the Sumaira Foundation.
