Ask the Doctor Discussion Series

  MMRF - Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation logo. 

We invite multiple myeloma patients and caregivers to this series of informative, virtual discussions

These discussions are designed with patients in mind.  We bring experts in the multiple myeloma field together with patients in an informal atmosphere, where patients and caregivers can get answers to their questions, learn more about multiple myeloma and meet others with the disease. The price for admittance is one question per myeloma patient (but you can ask more!)

Space is limited to 20 multiple myeloma patients and one guest each. This allows time for all attendees to ask questions and be involved in the conversation.
