Town Meeting for MPN Patients, Caregivers and Families

October 24, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm UTC+0

MPN Town Meeting Houston 10/24

 

Advancing research in the field of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) is leading to expanded treatment options and shifting the landscape of the condition to improve the lives of those living with polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and myelofibrosis (MF). On Saturday, October 24th, in Houston, TX, Patient Power and its partner, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, will conduct an MPN town meeting. The program will feature clinical experts and patient advocates discussing the latest research and treatments for MPNs, strategies for coping with symptoms and side effects, and tips on how to live well with an MPN.

You will have the opportunity to meet and connect with other patients and caregivers living with MPNs, and your feedback during the interactive event will help shape the conversation.  Our hope is that you’ll share your knowledge among your peers to learn and to be inspired by those you meet.

Please join us in person for this FREE interactive event to learn:

  • An understanding of MPNs and available treatment options
  • The latest research and emerging therapies for MPNs
  • Tips for monitoring your condition and managing side effects
  • Advice for navigating your care and coping with the emotional side of a chronic condition

Our panel of experts  will take your questions throughout the program. Local advocacy groups will also be on hand to offer support and to help you connect with the MPN community.
