National MS Society, Greater Connecticut Chapter Moves To New Neighborhood On The Worldwide Web

 

HARTFORD, Conn. The National MS Society, Greater Connecticut Chapter, having recently relocated from Newington to Hartford, is announcing its move to a new neighborhood within the World Wide Web (www) to include new e-mail addresses. Formerly located at http://www.ctnmss.org/, the chapter site can now be found at a new, easy-to-remember domain: http://www.ctfightsms.org/. For the moment, guests and visitors can still find and e-mail the chapter at its former ctnmss.org domain.

“The National MS Society is experiencing many changes exciting changes this year,” said Barbara Davis, who manages the chapter’s information systems. “Our new domain name is just one more positive change, making it easier for visitors to recognize and remember. Those just diagnosed with MS and those who have battled it for years depend on us for the most up-to-date research information available. Today’s culture looks to the Web as a definitive source of solid information. We want to make it as easy as possible for people, already facing tremendous challenges, to find us as quickly as possible.”

More than 6,000 Connecticut residents battle the effects of multiple sclerosis (MS). Multiple sclerosis is a potentially debilitating disease affecting the central nervous system. Symptoms can include among other things numbness in the extremities, difficulties with vision and speech, stiffness and, in some more severe cases, total paralysis. There currently is no cure for multiple sclerosis. The Greater Connecticut Chapter offers vital programs and services to those in Connecticut affected by MS. The chapter serves residents diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and their families across Connecticut, including Hartford, Tolland, Windham, New London, Middlesex and New Haven counties.

The chapter also raises funds to ensure ongoing scientific research to find a cure. The Greater Connecticut Chapter has raised $3 million or more for the past four consecutive years. Over the past few years, the chapter has provided in grants tens of thousands of dollars to support continuing Connecticut-based scientific research and specialized clinical care.

For more information on the chapter’s new domain address, the programs or services it offers or the organization’s many other efforts to fight MS, please visit http://www.ctfightsms.org/ or e-mail programs@ctfightsMS.org.
