*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have transitioned our Regional Community Workshops to a virtual format. Please continue to check this page for updates on upcoming virtual events. Thank you.

Designed for those seeking support and more information in smaller communities, IMF Regional Community Workshops offer families a condensed version of the full Patient & Family Seminar at no charge.

They usually take place on Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.  
Lunch and refreshments are provided. 


Why attend an IMF Regional Community Workshop? 

Maybe you live too far away from a metropolitan hub. That’s why the IMF hosts Regional Community Workshops. Seating is limited at these workshops to only 75–100 attendees. For that reason, patients gain one-on-one interactions with myeloma experts during the meetings. 

In this video, Kelly Cox, IMF Director of Regional Community Workshops and Support Groups, shares his passion for helping myeloma patients.

“We have a seat for every person that’s dealing with myeloma, whether they want to deal with it or not: I have a seat for them.”
