Gender Based Care in MS

The UCSF Multiple Sclerosis Center is proud to present a new Initiative to provide up-to-date Gender Based Care in MS. This can involve guiding women with MS through a pregnancy, through menopause, or providing comprehensive care plans for men with MS. Through this series, UCSF MS Faculty are providing a Thursday evening Patient Education Seminar Series. Each Trimester, we will host a patient education session on pregnancy management in MS. Twice yearly, we will host sessions on “Men with MS” and on “Menopause with MS”.

We now offer the opportunity to join our sessions remotely (details provided below).

Please email Dr. Riley Bove (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) with any questions or concerns.

We look forward to hearing from you!


The Location for ALL Sessions:

National MS Society Building, Fifth Floor Conference Room
1700 Owens Street (corner of 16th St. & Owens St.)
San Francisco, CA 94158


Upcoming Sessions (through June 2017):

MENOPAUSE. Living well with MS: Management during menopause and beyond
When: Thursday February 9, 2017 | 5:30 – 7:30 PM

The challenges of living with MS can be compounded by menopause symptoms (like hot flashes, or changes in mood or bladder function), changes in family or work structure, and sometimes progression of MS. This is a great time to reevaluate MS care in the context of a woman’s journey. Join us as Dr. Riley Bove, Faculty in the UCSF MS Clinic Gender-Based Care programs, discusses whole-person approaches to wellness during menopause and beyond.

MEN. Living well with MS: Specific topics for men
When: Thursday April 6 , 2017 | 5:30 – 7:30 PM

Being male or female affects one’s experience of multiple sclerosis, from diagnosis through treatment decisions, symptom management, and mood. Sometimes, men’s symptoms of multiple sclerosis are incompletely addressed, and men have not been fully involved in support and advocacy networks in multiple sclerosis. Join us as Dr. Liz Crabtree-Hartman, Faculty in the UCSF MS Clinic Gender-Based Care programs, discusses whole-person approaches to living life fully as a man with MS.
