Photo from my curly hair days

This picture was taken after my hair grew back and before my 1st haircut post transplant.

This is just a mock up for CME sponsored by PCE and PCN with whom I am proud to be associated. They are using my picture as a place holder in a trial to rework the web site. They have much better looking and famous speakers to populate their real home page, but I like my 15 minutes of fame.

If you want their real websites go to http://www.primarycarenet.org/ or http://www.primarycareed.com/ Their conferences are simply the best for primary care providers. Practical, patient oriented, balanced, and up to the minute.

I will be lecturing for PCE on anemia in the elderly and including MDS (myelodysplastic syndromes) with Dr Steensma from Mayo and now Harvard. My job will be to keep it real and practical in a complicated topic with which I hope never to have any personal experience. It is of particular interest to me that the drug that may revolutionize the treatment of MDS is the same new best friend for us with CLL, lenalidomide (Revlimid).

I am at the infusion center, patiently waiting for my IVIG and lab tests to get going. The usual spark plug, Ginger, who gets the process rolling is on vacation, so I still am able to easily type with two hands until the IV gets started.
