Monthly PMMNG Meetings

ASH LogoOur February meeting will feature Dr. Edward Stadtmauer  as our guest speaker. He will give us an update on the American Society for Hematology (ASH) 2018 conference, which was held in December in San Diego. This presentation will be a good way to catch up on exciting new research on treatments for multiple myeloma. Dr. Stadtmauer is the Section Chief for Hematologic Malignancies at Abramson Cancer Center, Penn Medicine. He also is the Roseman, Tarte, Harrow, and Shaffer Families' President's Distinguished Professor at the University of Pennsylvania.

Our lunch will be provided by BriovaRx Specialty Pharmacy so also come hungry!

Please note: Select slides from Dr. Stadmauer's large slide set are attached below.
