Hi everybody! My name is Roxana and I am coming back as co-president for the 2020-2021 year. I founded SAMS back in 2017-2018 after seeing a need for more awareness for MS within the university setting. I am now back as a graduate student and am incredibly excited to implement remote projects through SAMS to help our community learn more about MS. We have great initiatives coming up that will allow us to remain productive, safe, and raise awareness for MS! I am excited to work with my team and my community to help each other learn more about MS, inspire others to get involved in the field, and gain more interest for fundraising for MS research. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions! We will update the page with our upcoming projects, so stay tuned!
