BY JACK AIELLO On Sunday October 8, 2017 I was pleased to facilitate a panel discussion to understand advancements in treating multiple myeloma (MM). Being a 23-yr multiple myeloma survivor myself, I think it’s so important for myeloma patients and care partners to understand their disease and keep up with new developments, thereby becoming their own best advocate. And you can do so by watching Patient Power webinar replays like this one (below). Our panel consisted of MM experts Drs. Robert Orlowski (MD Anderson) and Noopur Raje (Mass General) and later we’re joined by a nurse practitioner and 2 patients. I’ve provide some highlights [with approximate time points] below but your interests might differ from mine so I’d suggest you grab a glass of wine and sit down to watch the full 2.5 hrs because discussion of topics such as side effects and supportive care are weaved throughout.
Please don’t hesitate to provide me with feedback (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know what questions I should consider asking next time.Replay: Understanding Advancements in Treating Myeloma from Patient Power on Vimeo.
