The Myeloma Crowd is announcing a new program: a series of patient education meetings called the Myeloma Crowd Round Tables on High-Risk Disease. These innovative meetings will feature top experts in myeloma to educate patients who have relapsed or become refractory to treatments as well as those who have high-risk genetics.
