The IMF will conduct a Regional Community Workshop in Birmingham, AL, on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Registration is FREE, but seating is limited. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from and meet one-on-one with myeloma experts Luciano J. Costa, MD, PhD (Associate Professor of Medicine, University of Alabama at Birmingham), Kelly Godby, MD (Assistant Professor of Medicine, UAB Hematology/Oncology, University of Alabama at Birmingham), and Charise Gleason, MSN, NP-BC, AOCNP (Winship Cancer Institute, Emory University, Atlanta).

Choose between two registration packages—either attend for a half-day on Friday, or attend both Friday’s sessions and another whole-day event on Saturday. This seminar will cover the latest myeloma treatments, information about stem cell transplant, managing bone disease, and other myeloma-related topics. We welcome you to meet other patients and family members who have perhaps gone through what you’re going through now. Together, we can learn, build community, and share our stories.
