Andrew Schorr:

Hello, it's Andrew Schorr from Patient Power. And I wanted to update you on our activities to support you and your family effected by cancer in this time of concern about coronavirus. We will be doing extensive live broadcasting. In the town hall meetings that we originally planned to originate with in-person audiences in Nashville for CLL, in Little Rock for multiple myeloma, and in the La Jolla, San Diego area for people with MPN,  myeloproliferative neoplasms, we'll be broadcasting live. As well as our plan for coverage from the American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting that originates typically in Chicago.

We will be updating you on issues that affect you. So for instance, how do you protect yourself? Should you travel? Should you interact with others, including maybe your grandchildren or other family members? How should you live your life? So we're continuing to interview experts and speak directly about that.

For instance, with the CLL event originating from Nashville, we specifically have a guest who's an infectious disease specialist. But beyond that, look for interviews that we're doing all the time to guide you on how you can be safe, what information is accurate, when to worry, who to call. Or whether just to stay home and probably you'll be fine. So we want to eliminate any overall extensive concern, and have all of us be prudent as more information becomes available.

So count on Patient Power to support you and inform you and your family as we learn more. We welcome your comments always, to comments@patientpower.info. And remember that knowledge, real knowledge can be the best medicine of all.
