Dr. Adam CohenDirector of Myeloma Immunotherapy at Penn Medicine, will give us a summary of the key research results from ASH. There was very encouraging news about new drugs and combinations of drugs to treat multiple myeloma presented at this meeting, so join the meeting to hear all about it.

We will be holding our first meeting of 2023 Saturday, January 14, 2023, from 1:30 - 3:00 PM ET. 

As has become our custom, this meeting will consist of two parts.  The first segment will allow us to have small group discussions about our myeloma experiences to address challenges we are facing and share tips & tricks for dealing with myeloma and drug side effects with one another.

The second portion of the meeting will focus on support programs for multiple myeloma patients that are provided by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). Ruby Nava-Ramos, the LLS Patient & Community Outreach Manager will speak to us about these programs.
