While most myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) patients are older adults, children and young adults can be affected as well, and research & treatment for pediatric MPNs is a growing field. Find out what we know and hope to discover about MPNs in children with our host Ruth Fein, patient advocate Portia Pliam, and special guest Dr Nicole Kucine, who specializes in pediatric MPNs as Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine.

How do you diagnose MPNs in children and young adults? What treatment options are available? Do they differ from treatments for adults with MPNs? What are the unique challenges of this rare pediatric condition? And finally, what does the future look like for children with MPNs? Join us for these answers and more on November 4th at 10am PT/1pm ET.
