Shepherd Center Debuts New Video Featuring MS Institute and Wellness Program

Video captures comprehensive nature of neurological and rehabilitative services for people with multiple sclerosis.

Shepherd Center recently released a new video that features the Andrew C. Carlos Multiple Sclerosis Institute and Eula C. and Andrew C. Carlos Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation and Wellness Program. The video features current patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), as well as physicians and therapists who treat patients in the MS Institute. It provides an overview of the many services offered at Shepherd Center for people with MS.

“I really don’t think there is a better place to have your MS managed, and it’s not because of what one individual does,” says Ben Thrower, M.D., medical director of the Andrew C. Carlos Multiple Sclerosis Institute. “It’s because of what the team does.”

The MS Institute offers a comprehensive range of supportive services and MS treatments, including psychological counseling, educational programs, vocational services, nutritional counseling, therapeutic recreation and wellness programs. Patients receive advanced medical care from clinicians at one of the nation's leading rehabilitation hospitals. The video offers a look inside at all aspects of the program, including medical treatment, wellness and research.

“We treat people with MS in a collaborative way,” says Anna Berry, PT, DPT, program manager, MS Institute. “That encompasses the clinic, which includes medical treatments, an infusion room and neurologist visits. It also includes research and outcomes, and it includes the wellness and therapy program.”

You can view the MS Institute video on Shepherd Center’s website here or on Shepherd Center’s YouTube channel.
