National MS Society Names Richard Durbin as Senator of the Year

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society honored U.S. Senator Richard “Dick” Durbin of Illinois as its 2007 Senator of the Year. The award was presented May 8, 2008, at the Society’s annual gathering of MS activists in Washington, DC. This is the highest honor the Society awards to public officials...

“Multiple sclerosis is a challenging disease that affects hundreds of thousands of Americans,” U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said. “I hope our efforts on the federal level can assist in unraveling the mystery of MS.

I thank the Society for this wonderful award, but the tireless work of advocates on this issue deserves the real recognition.”
