We direct you to resources/tools for medical care, tips on staying as healthy as you can, access to clinical trials, support systems, webinars, volunteer opportunities and so much more! Take a stroll through our site to learn more.

Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable, complicated and frustrating disease. Not only does it take a ton of energy to cope w​it​h this disease from day-to-day, but it also requires countless hours and energy to find information and resources/tools to help you manage symptoms and relapses. This is especially true for African-Americans (Black people) since there is not much in terms of material available specifically for us. 


Incredibly, the medical community thought that MS was not common among the African-American population. As we know, this is quite the contrary. In fact, it is more severe for African-Americans (Black people). 

Many times we know what we need, but sometimes we just don't know where to find it, or if it even exist. So, AARMS has done the work for you! AARMS provides a suite of resources/tools to help you enhance and optimize your knowledge of Multiple Sclerosis and find much of what may help you.

 

This information will help you to; prepare for medical appointments, learn about exciting web​inars, find tips on diet and exercise, register for great classes & events, get updates on DMTs, register for stu​dies and sign-up for clinical trials. All of this and so much more! To checkout what's available, CLICK HERE.
