MS Support Group
The Riverside MS Support Group is your chance to have a voice about your life with MS in a setting where you can feel safe, confident and understood. It's an opportunity to share your story, with all its achievements, challenges, hopes and frustrations, while you also experience new coping strategies and learn about the latest in research and treatment.
In July, Malcolm Woodard from Coloplast will be talking to the group about Urology and Continence Care. Some people with MS find that the disease affects their bladder and bowels. Mr. Woodward will offer some practical advice for effective bowl and bladder management.

That's a Fact:
The bladder, which stores urine, is controlled by the nervous system. Because multiple sclerosis damages nerves, bladder function may be affected.
Coming Up in August:
