Off to iwCLL 2015 to learn, teach, share, support and report on CLL ( chronic lymphocytic leukemia)
I am off to Sydney, Australia tomorrow with our nonprofit CLL Society where I will be your unpaid in person reporter from the meeting.
I am also speaking at iwCLL 2015 on a panel with Dr. Michael Keating, Dr. Andrew Roberts, and others on the Funding Equation where we will discuss ways to improve access to our meds despite their expense. I am talking about the Canadian and American patient experience.
And despite greatly discouraging logistical difficulties, we have also organized a patient Q+A session in conjunction with the wonderful team at Lymphoma Australia in Sydney for patients that are coming from as far away as New Zealand. We should have video from the doctors attending: Drs. Wierda, Wiestner, and Trotman.
It’s a very very long trip, and much work, but I am excited about this amazing opportunity to go and to share what I learn firsthand with the gang here.
Let me know if you have any burning questions for the gathered experts.
We are all in this together.
