A Northwest Arkansas event is looking to bring awareness to Multiple Sclerosis.
Channing Barker talked about A Vintage Affair for MS, an event she is chairing.
She also explained about the work the National Multiple Sclerosis Society does.
“A Vintage Affair is one way to get involved, but there are several ways to get involved for those living with the disease.”
The event celebrates local philanthropic leaders and inspires the community to do something about MS, according to their website.
“A new study published in the February 2019 online issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology, has confirmed that nearly 1 million people live with MS in the United State, more than twice the previously reported number,” according to the National MS Society’s webpage.
The Apollo on Emma, 308 West Emma Avenue, is where the event will be held on April 5, 2019. It’s from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
