Today on the CLL Society website, we share a Dr. William Wierda’s talk about the Therapeutic Next Steps in the treatment of CLL taped during the Patient Empowerment and Education Meeting held at UCSD in April 2015. Please take a look here to see the article and a video of his talk.
OK, Thanksgiving is over. Our “I’ve gained 5 pounds over Thanksgiving” clothes are packed and we’re flying down to Orlando tomorrow. Before ASH gets started, we’ll be attending the Lymphoma Coalition meeting and as new members, getting to know others who are part of this worldwide network of lymphoma patient groups representing 64 member organizations from 44 countries. The purpose of the organization is facilitating lymphoma patient organizations to form a community to support one another’s efforts in helping patients with lymphoma receive the care and support they need. We’re excited to share what the CLL Society has been doing in our inaugural year and to learn about the best practices of others.
The CLL Research Consortium is also having a meeting prior to ASH so we’ll be well primed to hear all the latest data about CLL once the ASH meeting starts on Saturday. Stay Tuned!
REGISTER NOW: If you live in the Los Angeles area, please consider attending a post-ASH patient education forum and CLL Society LA support group launch in conjunction with City of Hope. Dr. Tanya Siddiqi will be presenting on the latest data on Diagnosis and Frontline Treatment and Dr. Steven Rosen will present on Relapsed Disease and Novel Therapies. The meeting is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015. You can access the flyer here and pre-registration is requested. We look forward to meeting you there.
Finally, if you are receiving this email through a CLL Society Alert, you are all set. If you are receiving this through another method and haven’t already, please sign up here. Also, please forward this email to a fellow patient or caregiver who might benefit from knowing more about CLL. We’ve been posting a lot of great lectures lately and now we’ll have an abundance of new data on CLL directly from ASH, as well as the second issue of The CLL Tribune coming out before the end of 2015. This alert is your best friend in knowing what new material we have posted.
We are all this together
