HealthTree University: Know Your Therapy (BETA) (Part 2 of 3)

Editor’s note: 

These videos are still in the editing stages, but they have important information about your disease and the myeloma therapies patients commonly receive. So we have released the un-edited clips here early for you to enjoy.

Every myeloma therapy comes with its own surprises! Dosing, scheduling, side effects, combinations of the drug with other drugs, these are all factors to consider when selecting and going through your myeloma therapy. We interviewed some of the top myeloma doctors in the world to bring you up-to-date information about your disease and its treatment.

Below are some video excerpts from our HealthTree University curriculum to help you learn more about these important areas of your disease. We invite you to watch them all, and also visit HealthTree University and creating a HealthTree account. By creating a HealthTree account, in HealthTree University you can:
