THE WINTHROP COMPREHENSIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS CARE CENTER OFFERS NEW SUPPORT GROUP FOR WOMEN WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS FIRST SESSION APRIL 4

The Winthrop Comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Care Center is pleased to announce that it will start a new support group for women with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) on Thursday, April 4, 2013. Sessions will be held from 12:30 to 1:30 PM at the Winthrop Wellness Pavilion, 1300 Franklin Avenue, Suite ML-5 in Garden City. The group is ongoing; future meetings will be held the first Thursday of each month.

The support group was established in response to requests from women with MS who are struggling with work, family and relationship issues. “Most women experience challenges managing work and family,” said Mary Rzeszut, MS, LCSW, and Neuroscience Social Worker. “But women with chronic illnesses often deal with issues that are quite complex. Our goal is to offer support to women living with MS, so that they may enjoy a better quality of life and an increased sense of self-worth.”

To register for the support group for women with MS or to find out more information, please (516) 663-4593.
