MSA Trust

MSA News Magazine

We produce a free magazine, MSA News, three times a year which is sent to all registered members of the Trust. The magazine looks at a wide range of issues relevant to living with MSA, from current thinking on treatments, guides to everyday life with MSA from the practical to the emotional and updates on the latest research.

The magazine shares the stories of real people finding their way from diagnosis onwards, including issues covered across our growing network of volunteer-led, regional Support Groups. It also shows the dedication of our members to supporting the Trust’s work through committed and imaginative fundraising. We hope you will register now for (free) membership of the Trust and we will add your details to our membership magazine list.

We’re keen to hear your thoughts on the MSA News magazine. If you’re happy to share some feedback, please complete the quick ten minute survey here.
