What are Patient and Family Seminars?

The IMF hosts educational Patient and Family Seminars in cities around the world. At these meetings, patients and their families learn about the latest developments in myeloma from a panel of world-renowned myeloma experts. With the newest information about myeloma, patients can make educated treatment choices. They also can ask questions of leading myeloma experts as well as connect with others touched by myeloma.

I was attending a large medical conference, and I thought, 'Where are the patients? Why are they not meeting with these myeloma experts?' After this, the IMF team and I decided to host our first Patient and Family Seminar.
