WATCH HealthTree University: Precursor Conditions (Part 3 of 3) image

Every single person who gets myeloma first has a precursor condition. It is important to know how MGUS and SMM become active myeloma, and what you can do as a precursor condition patient to contribute to research about MGUS and SMM.

Below are some video excerpts from our HealthTree University curriculum to help you learn more about these important areas of your disease. We invite you to watch them all, and also visit HealthTree University and creating a HealthTree account. By creating a HealthTree account, in HealthTree University you can:
