In 2022, PVA expanded its membership eligibility bylaws to welcome all Veterans with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), which now accounts for 1 in 4 of all PVA members. Our national organization is committed to serving as a resource for veterans with MS as they navigate the ins and outs of living with the disease. Additionally, PVA service officers are trained in securing unique MS benefits from the VA and ensuring quality care for our veterans.
PVA can also connect members with MS to resources outside of PVA – we have strong partnerships with prominent MS organizations such as the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the VA’s Multiple Sclerosis Centers of Excellence.
At the Chapter level, we are thrilled to launch our own program specifically for veterans in New England living with MS. We seek to be a source of information at the local level, sharing information and advocating for your needs. We also want to build a strong community for our fellow veterans with MS in every New England state. Our Chapter will be hosting events specific to our members with MS, geared to your interests and abilities. We are also planning informational sessions with service officers, so you have opportunities to ask them questions regarding your care and benefits.
