For People Newly Diagnosed



The Knowledge Is Power (KIP) program is a free, at-home educational series for people newly diagnosed with MS and their families. KIP is written by Dr. Rosalind Kalb, a highly regarded author and psychologist, who knows about MS and the effect it can have on your life and the lives of people who care about you. KIP provides up-to-date facts about many aspects of MS.

Knowledge Is Power provides information about dealing with one of the greatest challenges presented by MS—the unpredictability and uncertainty of what is in your future.

You can have Knowledge Is Power delivered to your email address or your postal address. Receive these new topics each week in the convenience of your home:

  • Taking the First Steps: What is MS? Dealing with Your Diagnosis & Disclosure

  • Disease-modifying Treatments for MS

  • Maximizing Your Employment Options

  • Treating Yourself Well

  • Maintaining Healthy Relationships: Family, Friends, and Colleagues

  • Working with Your Doctor
