Rather than a brief visit in an exam room with your doctor to discuss your CLL diagnosis, treatments and COVID-19 news, imagine if you could eat dinner together and chat for 90 minutes? New Jersey CLL patients got to do just that, even during the pandemic! In a “virtual” dinner via zoom, Dinner with the Docs brought university specialists from Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ), community oncologists and patients together over dinner (delivered by local restaurants to the participants.) Over three nights, different regions of New Jersey patients and their families discussed the latest news and issues in CLL with local experts.
Here are three podcasts that have powerful excerpts from the dinner discussions. Although this was initially for a New Jersey audience, we are sure the information will resonate with you.
