Riverside Neurologist Dr. Jonathan Butler will join us for our March meeting to talk about to about Differences in Symptoms and Treatments. As a reminder, this meeting will be in the new space - the neurology waiting area. Come to the old location and take the first right after the elevator.

In addition to getting some good information, our meetings are also a great opportunity to spend some productive time with people who understand firsthand what you're experiencing.
