Johanna Biederman, M.S.

Development Officer

Maria Milazzo, N.P., CPNP

Jo Biederman served as the face of multiple sclerosis on Long Island for more than a dozen years as CEO of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Long Island Chapter bringing it to new heights in fiscal stability. An accomplished fund raising professional, she received a Master of Science degree from SUNY at Stony Brook, Bachelor of Science from St. Joseph’s College and an AAS in nursing from Suffolk Community College. She was inducted into Long Island Business News 2003 and 2002 Top 50 Women on Long Island, named 2001 Woman of Distinction by Distinction Magazine and has been highlighted in numerous business publications. She has been a frequent speaker (both radio and TV) and workshop leader on multiple sclerosis.

Convinced of the importance of the work being done by Dr. Lauren Krupp at the National Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Center, she was lured out of retirement to take on the vital role of raising money and increasing outreach for this significant cause.

Today, once again “retired,” she remains committed to the cause of MS, Dr. Krupp and the children it effects by continuing to raise funds for the new Lourie Center for Pediatric MS.
