Myeloma Minute: We Want to Hear from You!


♦ EDUCATION ♦ Survey


We Want to Hear from You!

The IMF is conducting a survey to better understand how patients with multiple myeloma and smoldering myeloma are treated. We ask you to consider doing two things to help us:

  • If you are a patient, we hope that you will participate in this survey.
  • Please forward this e-mail and survey to other IMF community members so additional patients are able to participate.

We greatly appreciate and value your time and input to this survey. It should only take 5-10 minutes to complete. This information will continue to help us serve the needs of the myeloma community worldwide. Thank you!
