THE ROSE HOTEL Tralee will play host to the first ever MS selfcare seminar in Kerry on Saturday, February 29th. The Kerry Multiple Sclerosis Wellness Event will take a holistic approach to empowering attendees to manage their care by focusing on exercise, nutrition and mindset.

Expert speakers on the day will be Neurologist Dr Helena Moore, Coach Ailis Brosnan, Dietician Conor Kerley and Physiotherapist Professor Susan Coote. Attendees will also benefit from a multitude of exhibitors and therapists throughout the event.

The Kerry Multiple Sclerosis Wellness Event was organised by Susan Carey and Jillian O’Sullivan on seeing the opportunity to introduce more health and lifestyle services here in Kerry, for people living with MS. “Traditionally, the information made available in relation to living with and treating MS is all medical research based intel. What’s different about our event is that it is lifestyle based, supporting people to take a more hands on approach to their selfcare”, says Jillian.

“This isn’t about learning how to stop what’s happening to you, it’s about learning how to manage it. We’re building a really positive day here, with approachable speakers on hand who will help to empower all of us to take better care of ourselves. With just 9,000 people in Ireland living with MS, it can sometimes be an isolating illness to deal with. We’re really proud to be bringing this opportunity to the community here in Kerry, rather than perhaps more mainstream centralised locations like Cork, Limerick or Dublin”, added Susan.

The Kerry Multiple Sclerosis Wellness Event is free of charge to attend, but with limited capacity booking in advance is essential. The event will take place in The Rose Hotel from 10.30am – 3pm on Saturday, February 29th and is open to anyone living with MS, or perhaps supporting someone who is living with the illness. This event wouldn’t be possible with the generous support of our sponsors; including Novartis, The Rose Hotel, Bon Secours Hospital Tralee and Fit Fusion.
