May's Living Well with Myeloma Teleconference Recap Video


“When your mind is so full of ideas it’s like a filled cup, there’s no room for anything new. The thought of emptying the cup means we are allowing ourselves to be open to new experiences and it’s an important step in any process.” Dr. Matt Mumber, Oncologist from Georgia Research Alliance, shared this and many other wonderful insights in the May Living Well with Myeloma Teleconference. For those who weren’t able to attend live, you can watch the Sustainable Wellness – An Integrative Approach to Transform your Mind, Body, and Spirit video HERE.
