The Linda E. Cardinale Multiple Sclerosis Center (MS Center) opened in 2002 and moved to the Star and Barry Tobias Ambulatory Campus at CentraState in 2010 with the support of the New Jersey Metro Chapter of the National MS Society to help improve the quality of life for people with multiple sclerosis and their families in the tri-state region. The MS Center is led by medical director, Amos Katz, MD, fellowship trained at Yale University School of Medicine, board certified in behavioral neurology, Terence McAlarney, MD, fellowship trained at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, and physician Caren Marks, MD, who completed her residency in general neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The goal of the MS Center is to provide comprehensive, high- quality care to patients with MS through accurate diagnosis, education, establishment of an appropriate plan of care, and executing an individualized treatment plan. Also offered at the center is a 12-week comprehensive wellness program that is the first of its kind on the east coast. This life-affirming program is designed to address the physical and psychological challenges associated with MS, and helps strengthen one’s mind and body through education, aquatics, and exercise.
