Young Professionals Discussion Group

This Young Professionals discussion group connects people in their 20's and 30's living and working with MS. We will discuss the effects of MS on this specific age group as it relates to the social,professional, personal and community aspects of life.  Topics will largely be chosen by participants as well as speakers to provide outside education, resources and experiences.

The group's format will be open-ended to encourage natural group discussion. This is a great place to get to know MS if you are recently diagnosed, vent about the issues you encounter or help others through similar situations. Gain from others' experiences when choosing a treatment, locating a neurologist, deciding whether to disclose or how to deal with symptoms like memory loss or fatigue. MS can be isolating and feel overwhelming, utilize this group to create a support system of people you can relate to.
We will be meeting a one of the larger tables in Panera Bread in Glendale just South of Colorado Blvd. and Alameda.  Please contact facilitator Liz Mellem at[masked] or [masked] with any questions or concerns.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

See you all tomorrow!

    I was just diagnosed September 2012 so I'm looking forward to meeting and relating to others in the MS community.

      Hi Heather! This is a great group for you to attend. There is a nice mix of newly diagnosed and "veterans". It's a great place to ask questions, learn how to make all of this easier, and talk to some people that understand what you are going through. I look forward to meeting you at our next meeting! If you have any questions before then, feel free to contact me [masked] or[masked]-1125. Have a good weekend! - Liz

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
