We are 7 weeks out from the 2016 annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology and did I mention that before that meeting I’ll be traveling to Serbia for the 2016 CLL Horizons meeting on November 11th -13th? It is the first official meeting of the newly forming CLL Advocates Network (CLLAN). The CLL Society is a founding member organization and I am on the steering committee. The main goal of this first CLL Horizons conference is to build capacity in patient advocates globally to support people affected by CLL.
If you have not yet participated in our Reader Poll to give us feedback about how we’re doing and what topics you would like to see covered in the future, please take 2 minutes and do so if you have time. You can access it here.
Today we are posting our last interview from ASCO 2016 with Dr. Susan O’Brien where she discusses a trial studying TGR-1202 with relapsed CLL patients. You can access my article, the abstract and our interview here.
