Smart Patients Get Smart Care™

The World’s Leading Authority for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Patients

Brad Hedrick

At the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 2021, Dr. Sameer Parikh, a hematologist and oncologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, interviewed our own Dr. Brian Koffman, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of the CLL Society. They discussed results from a survey of patients and caregivers.
Over the course of a year of monthly meetings, The CLL Society Bloodline will teach the BASICS needed to understand CLL. It will also provide news, help with the acronyms and new vocabulary words, and offer simple fun quizzes. The cycle restarts and it is updated annually.
Eight years ago this month, I was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). My world turned upside down. I knew nothing about CLL but had to get smart on the subject. And I did this with the help of good doctors and organizations such as the CLL Society.
