Rotarian Action Group of Multiple Sclerosis Awareness (RAGMSA)

Our guest speaker is Martin Taurins, Chair of the Rotarian Action Group of Multiple Sclerosis Awareness and member Rotary Club of Gisborne, Victoria, Australia. When Martin's son Jacob, a budding musician, was diagnosed at age 20 with multiple sclerosis (MS), he didn't know anything about the disease. Jacob held college degrees in arts, business and music.
Martin urges Rotarians to become involved with their local MS societies and hold events to spread awareness of the disease and support efforts to find a cure as it affects young people too. Find out more here!
