During the 44th Annual Conference of the Alliance for Continuing Education in the Health Professions, Catamount and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) presented a poster highlighting the educational value of the MS TeamWorks project. As long-time members of the Alliance, the members of the collaborative team were honored to be chosen to present the results of this unique and ongoing program dedicated to empowering patients, caregivers, and clinicians in the MS community.

The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) annual meeting occurred in Nashville this year and Catamount was in attendance once again! Our booth in the Exhibit Hall was busier than ever before and we suspect it had something to do with the Coach purse raffled off during the conference. Congratulations to Dyane who was the lucky winner! The spotlight of the booth this year was MS TeamWorks. In addition to information on MS TeamWorks, we displayed a kit that will be sent to 20 MS centers and offices, as part of a pilot program to expand the reach of the inspirational videos. And we wouldn't want to let a few of our expert faculty leave the CMSC meeting without capturing some recordings for future videos! It was a busy week, but well worth it for the Catamount team who went to Nashville and rocked it this year!

Finding ways to give back to the community is very important to the Catamount team. As a way to give back this year we signed up to be a Drop Off location for Toys for Tots. Local businesses and residents dropped off toys throughout December in our offices. The Catamount team also contributed toys through our annual "Secret Santa" exchange. This very fun tradition begins with a name drawing where each team member is tasked with gifting a toy that reflects the "inner child" of their chosen team member. Gifts were exchanged at the holiday dinner and after all the Secret Santas were revealed and the laughter subsided, the toys were donated to Toys for Tots.

Giving Back is Important to Us!
Our week started off with a viewing of the MS TeamWorks promotional video, which was played at the Opening Ceremony and Luncheon. We then set up our booth, which including a plethora of information on Catamount and our multiple sclerosis education. We took the opportunity to film one of our expert faculty during the week for the MS TeamWorks project, and capped off our busy schedule with a symposium on Friday night. Phew! It was an amazing time in New Orleans for the Catamount team and we are grateful to be a part of the MS community.

​Working with our collaborator The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) we recently concluded a 4-day video shoot in Washington DC for an upcoming project titled "MS TeamWorks!" The series of videos included people living with MS, caregivers, and MS clinicians, who all agreed to tell us their stories. We can't wait to launch the final product and let everyone listen to their powerful messages!

On Tuesday, September 13, 2016, we hosted a marrow registry drive in conjunction with Be the Match to help raise awareness and recruit new donors to the national bone marrow registry. For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 25 years Be The Match® , operated by the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. The Catamount team (along with some help from our "Future" Catamount team members are proud to support this very important cause...and we had some fun doing it too!

On Wednesday, September 21, 2016, Catamount jointly provided a symposium along with the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) and Nurse Practitioner Alternatives at the 2016 American Academy of Family Physicians FMX. The goal of the symposium, which featured Thomas A. Kintanar, MD, FAAFP, DABFM,  and Stephanie Agrella, MSN, RN, APRN, ANP-BC, MSCN, was to provide information to family medicine practitioners on multiple sclerosis (MS) and the importance of working towards a collaborative approach for managing patients. Not only did we have a packed house, but the lectures and the question and answers with the audience were enlightening and highlight the importance of primary care and specialists working together towards the goal of optimized care for patients with MS.​​​​
