Stay informed regarding relevant healthcare topics that can prove to be critical in your myeloma journey. African Americans have a higher incidence of multiple myeloma and its precursor conditions, MGUS and smoldering myeloma - more than any other ethnic group.
However, research has shown that outcomes for African American patients can be better than other populations IF they receive equal and optimal treatments.
It is a fact that disparate and unequal treatment is common for African Americans as it relates to healthcare.
Therefore, be empowered with the latest myeloma news. Seek out information regarding the latest therapies. Hear what the myeloma medical experts are researching and determining about effective drug combinations, stem cell transplants, and clinical trials. Read articles, view videos and attend events. Be proactive in learning all you can so that you can be your own best advocate.
