Announcing the First Online Micro-Course for Rare Neuroimmune Disorders

Education and knowledge are key in empowering those living with conditions like acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), MOG antibody disease (MOGAD), neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD), optic neuritis (ON), and transverse myelitis (TM), providing them with the necessary tools to navigate the highs and lows that come with having a rare neuroimmune disorder diagnosis. Over the past 30 years, we have been committed to fostering a community of empowered advocates, and we are thrilled to be continuing this work by launching a brand-new program: Online micro-learning courses for our community. This initiative is a testament to our commitment to empower those affected by these conditions with knowledge and support. 

Our Online Learning program is designed to offer a thorough understanding of rare neuroimmune disorders. It provides valuable insights and tools to effectively manage and advocate for your health. 

We’re excited to announce the first micro-learning course in this program, “Understanding Rare Neuroimmune Disorders.” This course, featuring Dr. Benjamin Greenberg, a renowned expert in autoimmune disorders, allows participants not only to gain a comprehensive understanding of their condition but also learn to manage it with confidence.  Participants who complete the micro-course receive a certificate of completion, a tangible acknowledgment of their dedication to learning.  

Tailored for anyone eager to deepen their understanding of these disorders, the self-guided course is accessible—available anytime, anywhere, on any device—ensuring that valuable knowledge is within reach for all.
