first virtual meeting

(We enjoyed our first VIRTUAL support group meeting of 2021. We had the opportunity to see each other and catch up on life as well as myeloma patient safety and the coronavirus. I think what we enjoyed most was just sharing and laughing together. )

  • Expert Speakers with Q&A
  • Medications & Treatments
