Robin Steinwand of St Albans was recently inducted into the National MS Society’s Volunteer Hall of Fame for her work as an outstanding advocate for people living with multiple sclerosis.

“Robin has been a passionate MS activist leader at the local, state and federal levels for years,” said Lori Espino, Greater New England Chapter President for the National MS Society, said in the release.

Steinwand was diagnosed with MS in 2000. Espino said in the release “Steinwand’s core mission is access to health care for all MS patients. She is especially passionate about health care affordability and overall access to MS treatments. She presented compelling testimony about the need to limit out-of-pocket costs for specialty tier drugs. She has also been exploring the veterans connection to MS more in-depth, to be able to appeal to own her member of Congress serving on veterans committees.”

Steinwand was honored at the Society’s Annual Leadership Conference in Dallas, Texas earlier this month.
