Led by expert faculty with extensive experience in both MS care and rural health, it is designed to address the unique challenges faced by nursing professionals practicing in rural areas. Many of these challenges are exacerbated by events such as the COVID-19 pandemic. In a series of short video modules, the faculty share their perspectives, offering insights into best practices and strategies for overcoming barriers, with the goal of improving the comprehensive care of people living with MS.
