Among the many transplant experts who will speak at this symposium is Christina Meyers PhD. Dr. Meyers' presentation Chemobrain: Is it Real? will explain the memory difficulties, organizational challenges and learning difficulties faced by many adult transplant survivors, and offer tips on how to cope. Dr. Meyers heads the Department of Neuro-Oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX which she helped establish in 1984. She has pioneered clinical research into the effects of cancer and cancer treatment on the adult central nervous system.
Daniel Armstrong PhD, Professor of Pediatrics and Psychology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, will speak on Learning and Memory Problems in Children After Transplant. His presentation will explain the causes, symptoms and possible treatments for children with learning difficulties. Dr. Armstrong has been an active researcher on neurodevelopment in children with cancer, and has been involved with bone marrow and stem cell transplantation research in children since 1984.

What's more, you'll also have an opportunity to network with experts like you --survivors, caregivers, parents and other family members who can share their stories and tips on handling post-transplant challenges.
