The IMF Advocacy program trains and supports concerned individuals to advocate on health issues that affect the myeloma community. Working at both the U.S. state and federal level, the IMF supports legislation that betters the lives of multiple myeloma patients nationwide.
We need YOUR help to get this information to community oncologists.
Our Advocacy Team conveys to the Administration the perspectives and experiences of myeloma patients who may be affected by the Veterans Community Care Program proposal.
