The Pathways program provides families with education and comprehensive support throughout the first year of diagnosis. Through innovative ways, we connect members with services, both locally and collectively. We equip and strengthen families to manage care and establish resources needed for the MPS and ML journey.
Pathways is led by National MPS Society staff members. To get started, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-806-0101, and our family support team will welcome you and get you started in the program.
