MS Research Australia’s mission is to accelerate Australian research by targeting the prevention, better treatment and cure for MS. Feehan Communications mission is to publicise MSRA’s goals to the community at large. For the past 4 years our work with MSRA has been in all areas of communications; from editing the quarterly news report to setting up national interviews and stories across the entire range of media formats- broadcast and print.
Two big stories that come to mind that received much coverage are the launch of the MSRA Brain Bank and a Parliamentary Breakfast in Canberra, to remind politicians of the urgency to increase Australia’s funding for MS Research.
MSRA Executive Director Jeremy Wright, introduced us to MS Australia. We oversaw the national campaign for World MS Day 2010 for both MSRA and MSA. As an extra, we were proud to create the Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign launched for the first time in 2010.
