CMSC Rocks Nashville for 32nd Annual Meeting With Highest-Ever Attendance
The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) rocked Nashville, TN, this year for its 32nd Annual Meeting, representing the largest North American meeting on comprehensive care and research in multiple sclerosis (MS).
This year turned another record-breaking attendance of over 2,300 registrants and a solid educational program balancing cutting-edge scientific, clinical, and practical topics related to multiple sclerosis (MS). "This meeting truly exemplifies our vision at the CMSC—to be the pre-eminent organization of healthcare professionals improving the lives of people affected by MS," noted CMSC Chief Executive Officer June Halper, MSN, APN-C, MSCN, FAAN.
Attendees were feeling the vibe at the Nashville Music City Center, where the conference runs through 12 noon on Saturday, June 2. In addition to physicians, nursing professionals, occupational and physical therapists, researchers, and patient advocates, the CMSC meeting welcomed 86 exhibitors including pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, publishers, and MS advocacy organizations.
The CMSC Annual Meeting, running from Wednesday, May 30 through Saturday, June 2, 2018, welcomed a record 2,300-plus registrants representing a wide range of MS care professions and 86 industry exhibitors.
A major draw of the meeting for MS professionals is the opportunity to meet colleagues, network, and share ideas. "Do your best to make a new friend this week," advised International Organization of MS Nurses (IOMSN) President Megan Weigel, DNP, ARNP-C, MSCN. And while the meeting helps MS care professionals re-energize for the challenges ahead, it's hard to imagine a better town than Nashville to kick back and enjoy some live music.
