2017 Multiple Myeloma Rounds

2017 Multiple Myeloma Rounds

                  We are excited to announce the formation of the 2017 Multiple Myeloma Rounds!

                Please Join us at one of these Free CME/CE Accredited Dinner Programs in your area!

In 2016, Dr. Agne Paner and her colleagues at several institutions in the Chicago area joined together to form the Chicago Multiple Myeloma Rounds Committee. Their collaborative effort led to the implementation of four Multiple Myeloma Rounds programs that were held in the Chicago area in 2016.

As a result of the success of the Chicago Multiple Myeloma Rounds, the Committee decided to expand the program to other multiple myeloma communities around the country.  

We are pleased that in 2017 the Multiple Myeloma Rounds program has now grown to include a Committee of 36 multiple myeloma specialists from 24 different institutions who will be implementing the Multiple Myeloma Rounds program in 5 cities across the country!

This program will continue to provide a forum for local healthcare professionals to meet on a regular basis and address issues specific to the diagnosis and treatment of their multiple myeloma patients.  

The Multiple Myeloma Rounds provides an opportunity for participants to exchange information, network with their colleagues, share best practices and learn the latest information on new therapies and advances in the management of multiple myeloma through interactive case studies presented by experts in the local area.

Please join us at one of the upcoming events!

The 2017 Multiple Myeloma Rounds Program Chairs and Committee Members
