The IMF Latin America

Bem Vindo! The International Myeloma Foundation is pleased to welcome the newest member of the IMF family: International Myeloma Foundation Latin America (IMFSA).

Thanks to the hard work of Christine Jerez Telles Battistini and her associates, the IMFLA has begun life with a bang:

They held the first meeting of their Scientific Advisory Board.

They even participated as a team in a marathon last September.

They will sponsor the National Register of MM Patients in Brazil. The first step will be a retrospective register regarding the last five years that should be finished by May. This is a major step. We look forward to a long productive association with IMFLA.
