About Wine & Dine in the D

Started in 2010, Wine & Dine in the D is a two-part event that includes an educational panel discussion by prominent myeloma doctors, followed by a “Wine & Dine” evening, featuring delicious food and beverages from some of Detroit’s finest restaurants. Approximately 400 community members, patients, caregivers and key opinion leaders in the myeloma community attend Wine & Dine in the D annually. We bring together specialists from around the country for the panel discussion and provide a platform for Metro Detroit patients and community to learn about groundbreaking new treatments and speak directly to these leading doctors.
