The BARLO MS Centre won’t just prescribe medication for MS; we are going to treat the disease’s impact on every facet of a patient’s life.
So the new centre will have spaces like an independent living lab where patients can learn how to modify their homes. And a gym for customized exercise, physiotherapy and high-tech gait analysis. And a nutrition clinic because what people eat matters. In other words, a space for treating the whole person.
Please join us in building a centre that will stop MS in its tracks. The time is now.
