MSAA is a national, nonprofit organization founded in 1970. Our organization is dedicated to improving lives today through ongoing support and direct services to individuals with MS, their families, and their care partners.
MSAA's free services help improve lives. Programs include a Helpline with trained specialists; award-winning educational videos and publications, including MSAA's magazine, The Motivator; safety and mobility equipment distribution; cooling accessories for heat-sensitive individuals; educational programs held across the country; MRI funding; and Lending Library among other services.
MSAA also offers tools to help manage the ever-changing course of multiple sclerosis. These tools are part of our Shared Management philosophy, involving education, training, use of technology, and tools to promote healthy outcomes. Shared Management is a concept whereby both the patient and healthcare providers work together to achieve the best possible health outcomes for the patient.
