Between 30 and 40 percent of people with Multiple Sclerosis experience swallowing problems, or dysphagia, at some time. While more frequent with advanced disease, it can occur at any stage. Symptoms may vary widely and range from occasional episodes of coughing or feelings of food "sticking in the throat," to more persistent challenges with safe management of food and liquids. Dysphagia can impact quality of life by interfering with enjoyment of meals, as well as increase the risk of aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition and dehydration.

Janet DeClark, Speech/Language Pathologist, and Baldwin Sanders, Registered Dietitian, will speak to how swallowing issues are evaluated, diagnosed, and treated, and also discuss the roles nutrition and food texture modification play in management of swallowing problems.

There will also be a question and answer period with Janet DeClark and Baldwin Sanders where participants can submit their questions.
This comprehensive program will be archived on the Can Do MS website: www.mscando.org. You will be able to watch it at your convenience if you're unable to attend live.
