This webinar occurred on Thursday, May 19, 2022. The recording is available below.
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month in May, The Boston Home will host a webinar focusing on strategies for managing the social and emotional challenges faced by people with advanced multiple sclerosis and other progressive neurological disorders.
Alex Burnham, Director of The Boston Home Institute and Rehabilitation Services, and Liz Gee, The Boston Home's Director of Social Services, will moderate the webinar.
