Your Core Healthcare Team

How Multiple Sclerosis (MS) will progress is difficult to predict. But there are often similar symptoms that are more predictable than others. The core healthcare team ensures that these symptoms are recognized and that you have access to the right care at the right time.

“MS is complicated.  There is not one thing that will work for everyone.  It’s vital to listen to a person and hear their story.  A personalized and collaborative approach is required to achieve the best outcomes for patients and their families.”

Carmen graduated from the Cardinal Stritch Nursing Program in 2006 and has worked in neurology since then.  In 2012, Carmen’s primary focus became Multiple Sclerosis and in 2016 she obtained her certification as a Multiple Sclerosis Certified Nurse.
