Myeloma Crowd Round Tables are day-long meetings that provide patients and caregivers updated information so that they are able to make decisions about their treatment and care. Intended to go beyond “Myeloma 101” they help patients answer key questions: What should myeloma patients do at relapse? Or when they become refractory to treatments? Learn from top myeloma experts about relapsed and high-risk disease and what you can do to stay one step ahead for your best outcomes. This is a great opportunity to ask your questions and meet others in the myeloma community.

Topics will include:

  • Diagnosing Low- and High-Risk Disease
  • Myeloma Genomics and How They Evolve During Treatment
  • Chromosomal Translocations and other High-Risk Features
  • Transplantation Issues of Low- and High-Risk Disease
  • Monoclonal Antibodies and Immunotherapy
  • Strategies for Refractory and Relapsed Patients
  • Demystifying Clinical Trials
