Monthly PMMNG Meetings

From https://mdhomehealth.com

Our April 2019 meeting will be held on Saturday April 13. This will be a Patient/Family Split meeting. After the general announcements, patients will meet in one room and family members in another. Each group will have a facilitator and will be an opportunity for questions, discussions and information-sharing with others who are in a similar situation. While being a team, a patient and his/her family members and caregiver(s) experience multiple myeloma differently. These Patient/Family Split meetings are designed to give each group the chance to talk openly with others who share the same role.
