Candy and Alan will be pinch hitting for Tom and Emily this month and will be featuring a video from the National MS Society, titled “Mood & Cognition In MS (What You Can Do)”. This is a very interesting video, especially if you want to know more about MS and some of its effects on mood (including depression), and memory (including forgetfulness). A limited number of complimentary books will be available at no cost. Discussion segments will be available.
