MSA Coalition’s 2014 Conference for Patients/Family

This announcement about the MSA Coalition’s 2014 Conference for
Patients and Family was posted to the ShyDrager Yahoo!Group recently.

The conference is on October 17th and 18th in Crystal City, VA (near
Washington, DC).  I believe they have started recording these events
and DVDs are eventually available.  But, if anyone attends from our
local support group, please share your notes!
