Given the growing concerns over the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, the International Myeloma Foundation wants you to know our plans to ensure your access to our resources.
With a focus on the health and well-being of our staff, the IMF’s physical offices will close on Friday, March 13, with a reopen date to be determined. We have also asked our team not to travel until further notice. Our entire staff is fully capable of working effectively and securely from off-site locations for an extended period of time.
Please Continue to Contact the InfoLine
During this time, we recommend if you have questions for the InfoLine, please leave a message at 1-800-452-2873 or at [email protected] We will not be able to respond in real-time, but we will get back to all inquiries in the order they have been received. So keep your questions coming!
