Join the MS Society at Cineworld Watford for 'Breaking Boundaries in MS Research'

People affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) can attend a free, fully-accessible research talk and Q&A at Cineworld in intu Watford on Saturday 22nd June 2019.

MS affects more than 100,000 people in the UK and it is it often painful and exhausting. It can cause problems with how we walk, move, see, think and feel. Hosted by the MS Society Watford Group‘Breaking Boundaries in MS Research’, will look at our understanding of MS, the research that’s helping with symptom management and the research plan to stop MS in its tracks. 

The free event at Cineworld Watford starts at 10am on Saturday 22nd June and is open to the public. The nearest car park to use is Charter and the Cineworld entrance is on the upper mall. The event will be held in Screen 2, on Level 2 , which is accessible by both lift and escalator.

Guests can enjoy refreshments and find out more about the MS Society locally and nationally. The research talk will run from 11am - 12.30pm, plus Trishna Bharadia, one of the MS Society Ambassadors will also be doing a short talk about living well with MS. Trishna was the ‘Volunteer of the Year’ at the MS Society Awards in 2013 for her work with support group Asian MS. She regularly shares her experience of MS in blogs, media interviews and as part of the MS Society's campaigns. In 2015 she was one of 6 people chosen to compete on BBC One’s ‘The People’s Strictly’ Comic Relief special.
