It has officially been one year since MSAA launched its online peer-to-peer forum, My MSAA Community! This virtual community (powered by HealthUnlocked) has allowed individuals living with MS and their care partners and families the opportunity to share their experiences, discuss a variety of topics, and support others in a friendly and safe environment. Community members are able to connect with other people affected by MS, contribute to ongoing conversations, or start their own conversation asking for advice or sharing their journey.
Here are just a few of the ongoing conversations being discussed on My MSAA Community:

Remember the days when the best way to communicate with people far away was pen pals and old-fashioned snail mail? Technology certainly has come a long way since then! Now, there are hundreds of ways to connect with others via the computer or your mobile device – and MSAA wants to help! My MSAA Community, powered by our friends at HealthUnlocked, is a peer-to-peer online support forum that connects members of the MS community on a daily basis. As a member of this friendly, supportive, and safe online forum, you can ask questions, contribute to ongoing conversations, or start your own conversation about your personal MS journey.
