COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Health (MRH) will begin a new Multiple Sclerosis (MS) support group on Thursday, March 5. The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at the Maury Regional Annex located across from Maury Regional Medical Center at 1223 Trotwood Avenue in Columbia.
The MS support group was established to provide education and support for those impacted by MS, including newly diagnosed individuals, their families and friends. The group will be facilitated by Maura Lipp, M.D., a member of the MRH medical staff and MRH Chaplain Lyndall Propst.
“A diagnosis of MS brings challenges, frustration and fear,” said Dr. Lipp. “Our goal is to provide a forum for learning more about MS, the resources available and to create an environment for open discussion and support.”
The group will meet on the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. For more information, call 931.540.4243.
