WMSD 2012 in Greece
A series of events took place over Greece throughout May this year to mark World MS Day in the Country. A stall was set up in the Mediterranean Cosmos shopping centre by the Greek MS Society (GMSS) from which information was distributed to passers-by over an 8 day period. As well as informing shoppers about the work of GMSS, WMSD banners were set up alongside a TV screen displaying the campaign messages and videos.
On the 29th of May a musical evening was held, featuring traditional Greek music and attended by GMSS Members and friends.
A conference was held on the 30th May and hosted by GMSS President, Dr. Anastasios Orologas, who welcomed 250 attendees in discussing scientific progress in the treatment of MS. The discussion centred around important topics such as recent advancements in MS treatment methods, stress factors in MS and the impact of nutrition in MS patients’ everyday lives.
The meeting concluded with a buffet at the underground hall of the Aristotle University congress centre where visitors had an opportunity to view the new “BmyEyes” photographic collection, which showcases work by artists with MS.
