HealthTree University: Multiple Myeloma Basics Part 3
Posted Jul 23, 2020

Thinking about your myeloma on a high level can be just as important as knowing the details of your care. Who gets myeloma and why? Is your family at risk of getting it? And what strategies should you as a patient understand as you go through treatment for your disease?

Below are some video excerpts from our HealthTree University curriculum to help you learn more about these important areas of your disease.

If you register in HealthTree to use HealthTree University (where you can watch these same videos), you can save and keep track of your progress, get points for answering quiz questions, bookmark videos, take notes, earn prizes [COMING SOON], and get access to all the other features of HealthTree.
