MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. We help each person address the challenges of living with MS through our 50 state network of chapters. We fund more MS research, provide more services to people with MS, offer more professional education and further more advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world.  

The Society is dedicated to achieving a world free of MS.  We are people who want to do something about MS now. 

Founded in 1973, the North Florida Chapter offers information and referral, workshops, peer support, and direct assistance for more than 18,000 people affected by MS in North Florida.
