Multiple Sclerosis Association of America’s Webinar “How to S.E.A.R.C.H.™ for the Right MS Therapy for You!” Wins Award

MSAA is proud to announce that a 2012 APEX Award for Publication Excellence has been given to our online video webinar, “How to S.E.A.R.C.H.™ for the Right MS Therapy for You!” This is the first APEX Award MSAA has received in the category of webinars and the eighth APEX Award received overall. This year’s APEX award competition drew approximately 3,400 entries across a range of 11 categories.

“The recognition of being named an APEX Award winner demonstrates the excellent work of our staff and Dr. Corey Ford,” states MSAA President and CEO Doug Franklin. “It is also a great testament to the high quality of the programs offered by MSAA.”

MSAA’s S.E.A.R.C.H. program encourages individuals to take an active decision-making role in managing their MS and selecting a disease-modifying therapy. Presented by MSAA’s Healthcare Advisory Council Member Corey Ford, MD, PhD, the one-hour on-demand video provides an update on current and emerging MS therapies and explains how the S.E.A.R.C.H. acronym helps organize six key questions to ask one’s healthcare team when deciding on a therapy.

S.E.A.R.C.H stands for:

S. = Safety

E. = Effectiveness

A. = Affordability

R. = Risks

C. = Convenience

H. = Health Outcomes (overall wellness and quality of life)

We invite you to learn more about our S.E.A.R.C.H. program and view this award-winning webinar at the following link:


The S.E.A.R.C.H. program is made possible through unrestricted educational grants from Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Biogen Idec, and Teva Neuroscience.
