CLL Society 2020 Patient Survey on MRD testing & Limited Duration Therapy:
When CLL Society takes on a learning initiative to give you in-depth mastery of any important subject, our lessons are never “one and done”! We stay with you until learning is complete. How do we do it? We survey the collective knowledge of our readers to determine what you still “yearn to learn” so that we can best tailor future learning for you. Our MRD & LD Survey is still in play. Please help us out by giving your thoughts. Thanks!
