The Utah Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is urging citizens not to confuse the society with the Multiple Sclerosis Association - an organization with a name that looks and sounds similar.

The MS Association, which is based in New Jersey, is raising money by telemarketing and direct mail appeals. It is not affiliated with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and donations do not assist the Utah Chapter or their clients served locally.For more information on the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, call 575-8500 in Salt Lake, or toll-free 1-800-527-8116.
