What MWS attendees are saying...

“I cannot thank you enough for putting together such a great summit! I learned in those 9 days more than I have ever learned from my own neurologist. Each specialist had such a vast knowledge of wealth of information to share and spoke with so much empathy and compassion. Truly felt understood for the very first time. Deeply touched and grateful. Can’t wait for the next one!!”
