Learn what myeloma specialist and oncologist Dr. Mike Thompson, MD, PhD from Aurora Health Care is doing to drive social media adoption in oncology and how its use can impact the every day lives of myeloma patients.

He has received numerous awards around myeloma research including the ASCO Young Investigator Award (YIA) and ASH Clinical Research Training Institute.

Dr. Thompson is a driving force behind the adoption of social media in the world of oncology, speaking at the most recent ASCO 2015 (#ASCO15) conference on this topic and participating as a lead at ASCO and ASH for social media adoption in the world of oncology and healthcare. This December he will lead a special-interest session entitled “Social Media for the Hematologist” at #ASH15.
