Ballarat Wellness Dinner

Brain Health and Lifestyle Redesign

Wednesday, 12 February 2020

6.30pm - 8.30pm

Please arrive at 6.00pm to check in


Brain health is something we all should take seriously. For someone diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, brain health is even more important. 

We invite you to attend our dinner with MS Nurse Advisor Maree Maher who will help you explore the international recommendations of ways to live a brain healthy lifestyle and she’ll also challenge you to make positive lifestyle choices to maximise brain health.

Maree is an internationally certified MS Nurse and manages our MS Connect and MS Advisor Services. 

Enjoy a wonderful 2-course dinner whilst hearing about wellness approaches and strategies. You will go home inspired to maintain a brain healthy lifestyle. 

We are here to support you with any changes that you may be dealing with, through ongoing peer support programs, fatigue management, employment support, support to access the NDIS and a whole range of other services. 


$10 per person*

*As the numbers at this program are limited, you are welcome to bring one guest. Registration is essential.

Please note: As catering must be confirmed within 7 days of the program, we are unable to offer refunds outside of that time period (except in extenuating circumstances - please contact us if this applies education@ms.org.au).
