Beyond the Diagnosis: Surviving and Thriving with CLL / SLL

Recorded Monday, August 21, 2023


Those living with chronic lymphocytic leukemia or small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL / SLL) are living longer than ever. In fact, with all the new and improved treatment options, most will have a normal life expectancy and live for a very long time past the diagnosis. However, there are special considerations when it comes to preventative care and managing other aspects of health over the lifespan. In this session, we will discuss secondary cancer screenings, the importance of preventing infection, maintaining healthy bone density, monitoring for cardiovascular risks, and the significance of mental health.
