For our very first HealthTree Round Table for AML on January 26th, 2022, we invited 3 top AML experts to extensively cover the basics. It was our goal for you to understand the nuts-and-bolts, so to speak, of the optimal way AML is diagnosed and treated so that you can have informed and educated conversations with your healthcare team. Through the information covered, it is our hope that you will better understand what steps should be taking place in your care and realize the hope and opportunity that exists in treating AML today. This knowledge will provide a firm foundation for future Round Tables as we go deeper into more specific and advanced topics.
Depending on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hoping to host several in-person Round Tables this year. We are currently considering Miami, Florida this spring followed by Seattle, Washington and Buffalo, New York this fall. All in-person events will be live-streamed so you can view them from home. Stay tuned for more details!
Without your attendance and participation, we would not be able to build this strong AML community. We'd also like to extend a big thank you to our AML experts, Dr. Desai, Dr. Sallman and Dr. Carraway for sharing their time and expertise with us along with our sponsors.
