Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

These groups promote research, stimulate evidence-based rehabilitation to support people with MS and their caregivers in living with MS. The appointment of the chairman and co-chairman of the SIGs shall be made by the Executive Board with guidance from the members of the individual SIGs.
