Eighth Robert A. Kyle Lifetime Achievement Award presented to Dr. Joan Bladé
The setting for the evening was a Catalonian masia (a typical farmhouse of the region) called Can Travi Nou near the Vall d’Hebron Park in Barcelona. More than two hundred guests were in attendance to honor the lifelong dedication and commitment of Dr. Bladé to myeloma patients, their families, and to myeloma research.
