Susie Novis, President, International Myeloma Foundation

The International Myeloma Foundation is proud to present this educational program: Expert Opinions on Multiple Myeloma. We hope that you find it informative and helpful to you in your practice for the care and treatment of patients with myeloma. This program was made possible by a generous grant from a patient.

Program Overview

Much has changed in the approach to treatment for patients with myeloma in the past decade. But reading the latest research is not the same as understanding how top specialists use this knowledge in their practices. To meet this need, Expert Opinions on Multiple Myeloma provides physicians with the chance to see world-renowned myeloma specialists sharing their knowledge, discussing their treatment choices, and comparing their perspectives on controversial issues in multiple myeloma and related diseases.

Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians who diagnose and treat patients with multiple myeloma.
