Remembering Mike Katz, a Very Special Patient Advocate


In his blog this week, IMF Chairman Dr. Brian Durie reflects on the sad passing of Mike Katz, which “has left an enormous gap in the myeloma community,” he notes. “Mike routinely inspired patients to take charge of their myeloma—to understand what is going on and get questions answered. He was a colleague and a friend to patients and physicians alike.” CLICK HERE to read more.
