The Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis’ Five-Day CAN DO® Program

Posted Nov 17 2009 10:20pm

The Heuga Center for Multiple Sclerosis’ CAN DO program provides a unique opportunity for people and families living with multiple sclerosis (MS) to interact with 45 MS specialists. In tough economic times these life-changing programs are no less remarkable and perhaps all the more valuable. Given this, The Heuga Center is offering one night's free lodging for those who register by April 8.

The program, taking place in Vail May 13 - 17, focuses on improving the quality of life of people living with MS by answering questions and giving recommendations based on individual assessments and lifestyle goals. CAN DO is aninnovative educational and wellness program thatteaches participants how tomaximize their health and improve their quality of life.

To ensure individualized attention, the CAN DO program is limited to 25 participants with MS. Each participant is encouraged to bring a support partner, often a family member or friend, who may attend the program’s support partner sessions in addition to participating in the numerous workshops and lectures.

Michelle K., a recent CAN DO participant shared her experience. “This program has promoted health and created hope in my life. The CAN DO program gave me new tools. I learned how to better balance the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual dimensions within my MS experience. Additionally through consultations with individual expert team members and interactions with group members, I felt more connected and a greater sense of control. Even though my husband has been supportive and willing to understand MS, he learned much more about MS and how to continue his support for me. I think his experience with other support partners helped him feel not alone.”

The HeugaCenteroffers three specific heath and wellness programs for people who have multiple sclerosis and their families. The flagship program is the five-day CAN DO program. CAN DO 2 is a two-day follow up, and the JUMPSTART program is a one-day introduction to The Heuga Center’s health and wellness philosophy. All of the Center's programs are based on the philosophy that you can have a chronic condition and have your health. Scholarships are available for CAN DO program participants.

Based in Edwards, Colo., The HeugaCenter for Multiple Sclerosis is a nonprofit organization leading the way with comprehensive programs that empower people and families living with multiple sclerosis (MS) to transform and improve their quality of life.

The HeugaCenter ’s nationally-renowned health and wellness programs are: five-day CAN DO ®, two-day CAN DO 2 ® and one-day JUMPSTART ®.
