Dear Friends and Supporters of the CLL Society,
New this week!
CLL Society is excited to be bringing you the first of nearly 50 interviews from ASH 2019. This one is with Dr John Allan on new ways to target Richter’s Transformation.
Our own Dr. Koffman was interviewed at ASH 2019 about importance of attending ASH for advocates, his own research, his highlights from ASH and much more. You can watch it here.
CURE magazine’s 12th Edition Cancer Guide for the Newly Diagnosed has a nice summary of the latest about CLL, developed in partnership with the CLL Society. The electronic version is not yet online; we will share the link once the online version is released.
