In an effort to provide accurate and easily accessible information about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) and Wondros have created the COVID-19 and MS Pathfinder online tool.
The COVID-19 and MS Pathfinder tool, available on MSAA’s website, was developed to allow members of the multiple sclerosis (MS) community to search for trusted sources and information related to COVID-19. The Pathfinder tool can help users find information on how to safely manage MS while staying at home, what to do if you or a loved one presents with COVID-19 symptoms, how to be prepared for a potential emergency situation, ways to contact healthcare professionals, and more, according to a media release from the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America.
“We are pleased to partner with Wondros on this new and innovative tool to assist members of the MS community access valuable information and resources pertaining to COVID-19. During these uncertain times, it’s vital for individuals with chronic illnesses to be able to find credible, up-to-date information on this ongoing health crisis.”
