Tomorrow, May 1st, will see the beginning of MS Awareness Month, the theme for 2012 being Kiss Goodbye to MS. MS stands for Multiple Sclerosis, the most common neurological disease affecting young Australian adults. MS affects over 21 000 Australians.
To help us support MS Awareness Month, please enjoy our scrumdiddlyumptious Bake Sale today on the concourse from 10am – 1pm. All proceeds will go to MS Australia, which will be used towards preventing and treating the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, as well as providing support and services for people with MS.
Finding Further Information on MS @ UC Library
If you are studying or researching about, are affected by, or know someone affected by MS, you may find it of interest to see what materials UC Library has in its collection. Keying in ‘Multiple Sclerosis’ in the ‘Subject’ field of our catalogue will result in a range of Multiple Sclerosis topics.
Undertaking a general keyword search for Multiple Sclerosis is likely to result in additional resources. A contemporary resource that may be of interest includes:
This book presents non-pharmacologic treatments for common medical practice complaints – all supported by current scientific evidence [Publisher’s web page]. This book has a chapter dedicated to MS.
For the latest research on MS and other neurological conditions, we subscribe to couple of Multiple Sclerosis e-journals. Further information can also be found on our several health databases, for example, Informit Health Collection, Medline (EBSCO) and PubMed Central.
As we enter May, spare a thought towards Multiple Sclerosis and help kiss goodbye to MS!
