On Saturday, September 29, 2018, the Medical College of Wisconsin is hosting it’s 2nd annual Multiple Myeloma Patient and Caregiver Symposium. The event will be held from 8-3 pm at the Ingleside Hotel (formerly the Country Springs Hotel) in Pewaukee, WI, and is provided free to patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals.
Keynote and Featured speakers are Dr. Edward Stadtmauer, Section Chief Hematologic Malignancies at Penn Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, and Dr. Parameswaran Hari, Chief of Hematology and Oncology Division at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Network, respectively.

The Myeloma Crowd will be holding demonstrations of their HealthTree platform later Saturday afternoon from 4-6 pm the same day in the Woodland D room at the same hotel. Register here if you plan to attend (so we can plan on food).
