As rapidly developing research leads to new treatment options and an improved quality of life for people with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), it’s more vital than ever for patients and their loved ones to stay informed.

Join us, along with our partner, The Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at Columbia University Medical Center, on Saturday, May 14th, for a free in-person CLL town meeting for patients and care partners. Learn more about emerging therapies, current treatment options and support resources—straight from leading CLL experts.

During this interactive town meeting, you will have the opportunity to meet and connect with experts, other patients, survivors and care partners touched by CLL to share your knowledge with your peers, learn and become inspired.

Please join us in person for this FREE town meeting to learn:

  • The latest treatment and research news and what it could mean for you or a loved one
  • Effective tools for treatment planning and monitoring CLL
  • Inspiring stories of people living well with CLL
  • Strategies for dealing with CLL complications and treatment side effects
  • Advice for living well with CLL and coping with day-to-day issues

Our expert panel will take your submitted questions, and advocacy groups will be on hand to offer support and to connect you with valuable resources.
