Mission Honoree 

 

Puerto Rico Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (FEM) 
Award accepted by Dr. Ángel Chinea, Medical Director of the San Juan Multiple Sclerosis Center 
 
Over the last year, the MS community in Puerto Rico has been heavily impacted by not only the COVID-19 pandemic, but also natural disasters causing catastrophic earthquakes. In response to this, Ángel Chinea, MD, Medical Director of the San Juan Multiple Sclerosis Center, and Lourdes Fernández Trujillo, Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (FEM), worked together to form a collaborative partnership with MSAA to help their clients access our programs and services, providing necessary educational programming and resources. We are proud to honor Dr. Chinea, Ms. Hernandez, and the resiliency of the MS community in Puerto Rico as the 2021 Mission Honoree.
