For most of us in the US, when we join the lucky MS'ers club, the first place we turn is likely to be the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The National MS Society's vision is a world free of MS - something which we can all get behind! But while the bastard refuses to die, they also focus on ensuring that people affected by MS can live their best lives.
One of the ways in which they do this is the MS Navigator program. The Navigators exist to connect you with the help you need, wherever and whenever you need it.
To tell us more, my guest today is Allison Krehbiel, the Director of MS Navigator Services Delivery. Allison provides leadership to the nationwide team of MS Navigators who receive direct referrals from healthcare providers - utilizing the power of collaboration to improve client outcomes.
Allison has been with the National MS Society since 2005 when she started as a contracted Case Manager. She received her Masters in Social Work from the University of Washington and has a certificate in non-profit management and in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
