Event Description

The Southern California Myeloma Community Chapter is pleased to welcome Todd Foster, Head of Product for HealthTree for an interactive conversation on how to unleash the power of Cure Hub to benefit individual patients and the overall myeloma community.

In addition, we will discuss how Cure Hub can accelerate research towards a cure- a goal we all share! 

Registered participants will also receive access to additional support in building and/or updating their Cure Hub profile.
