Patient Power is closely monitoring the government and medical community information about the COVID-19 virus. The health of our guests, speakers and staff are our highest priority. As a result, we have made the decision to hold the Myeloma Town Meeting scheduled for Saturday, April 18th as an online event only.
New treatments and testing are now available for multiple myeloma patients with more on the way! How do you decide which treatment option is best for you since, fortunately, there are so many available choices, but not a definite treatment roadmap? Join us as renowned experts share how to do well wherever you are on your journey.
