For Survey Participants 

You are being asked to participate in a research project entitled: OT Interventions and Multiple Sclerosis

We are graduate students at Russell Sage College in the Occupational Therapy (OT) department. We are conducting a survey to gain insight into how Occupational Therapists can more effectively implement treatments to individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Please take our 10-15-minute survey so we can gain a better understanding of the relationship between OT and MS.

There is a chance that you may become emotionally upset while answering these questions. You may exit the survey at any time, or skip any questions.

We are looking for individuals who have a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). If you are interested, please click here.
