Overview

Join us for a discussion between our host, Ruth Fein, patient-advocate Taja Shabazz-Simmons, Dr. Irum Khan, Assistant Professor of Hematology/Oncology in the Department of Medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, and Dr. Karen Bullock, Professor and Head of the School of Social Work at North Carolina State University, on December 9th at 12:30 pm PT/3:30 pm ET.

Dr. Khan is passionate about caring for traditionally underserved patients every day and her research focuses on racial and socioeconomic disparities in treatment patterns and outcomes. Dr. Bullock has studied how the lack of culturally competent options to meet a range of care needs create barriers to optimal psychosocial care. Who is predisposed to scarring, bleeding, clotting? Where do institutions tend to fall short and how can they better overcome barriers? How do disparities in access to care affect outcomes? And what can we, as an MPN community, do to advocate for all MPN patients to get the best care possible?
