Women are 2-3 times more likely than men to be diagnosed with MS. The reasons for this disparity are not clear, although there are a number of possibilities, including genetic factors and hormones.
We also know that women’s experiences of living with MS are different from men’s: from the effects of MS on pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause, to broader questions about medical attitudes to women’s experience of illness and pain.
How can the OMS program best support women, and what can we learn from our lived experience of MS?
This webinar is for everyone - men as well as women, friends and family members of people living with MS.
We warmly welcome your questions and any experiences that you would like to share - before, during and after the webinar.
