About the network

MS Minority Research Engagement Partnership Network

The MS Minority Research Engagement Partnership Network is an inclusive and comprehensive program that brings together diverse stakeholder groups to identify and address the barriers to minority participation in MS research. Together, we are using our collective knowledge, research, and insights to dig deep into the issues and develop innovative, community-endorsed, culturally appropriate strategies and solutions to promote research participation among racial and ethnic minority groups.

Partners in the Network represent a wide range of stakeholders involved in overcoming MS and health disparities, including:

  • People with MS
  • Minority health organizations
  • MS patient advocacy organizations
  • Researchers and clinicians
  • Biopharmaceutical companies developing MS treatments
  • Community organizers, business leaders, educators, and faith institutions
