We are the ‘what’s next’….when your doctor says you have MS”
The Alaska Multiple Sclerosis Center promotes a healthy and active lifestyle for Alaskans living with MS by providing educational resources and seminars, recreational and social opportunities, as well as regular fitness sessions based on current treatment, research & resources.
We are Alaskans with MS who reach out to the Alaskan MS community by organizing educational seminars , online & personal support, and a variety of regular outdoor recreational opportunities aimed at improving one’s quality of life while living with a neurological disease.
We aim to compliment the efforts of the Alaska Medical Community by providing services above and beyond the direct medical needs of an individual,as well as inform you of all support services available in the state and nationwide.
The AMSC relies on the generosity of our supporters and corporate sponsors to provide programs at low-to-no cost for all those who wish to participate. We accept a wide variety of donations, both monetary and in-kind.
Because of the generosity of the Providence Alaska Medical Center, Alaska Fighting Championships, ACCESS ALASKA, the Anchorage YMCA, Challenge Alaska and private donations, we are able to provide an ever growing calendar of events which includes exercise classes and educational Doctor talks. For specifics on yoga , art , chair exercise, aquatic therapy, craft sessions, or community pool activities visit our Programs page. Our Resources page will lead you to information on care referrals, medications available to you that slow the progression of MS, a list of Neurologists in Alaska and places to go for answers to questions about MS.
In the Mat-Su Valley, the Mat-Su Foundation has helped fund adaptive yoga and complimentary memberships to community pools, ice skating rinks and other recreational venues.We welcome suggestions to expand our services to the many people living with MS through out our state.
