Dear members and partners,

We are very glad to present the second edition of our Membership Newsletter. 

With the great support of our members, we aim to establish this publication as an important tool for sharing and disseminating MS news across Europe. 

A recurrent theme for this edition is rehabilitation. Physical activity and management of diagnosis also feature. The authors come from countries as diverse as Portugal and Kosovo and employ different styles, from reports to testimonies.  

We believe this newsletter truly reflects the power of MS voices coming together!
