Knowledge is Power!


The Knowledge is Power (KIP) program is a free, six-week, at-home educational series for people newly diagnosed with MS and their families. KIP is written by Rosalind Kalb, Ph.D., a highly regarded author and psychologist, who knows about the effect MS can have on your life and the lives of people who care about you.
