The Florida Myeloma Community Chapter meets to discuss the hope for the future lives of patients and families affected by myeloma thanks to new and developing therapies. Dr. Ailawadhi is excited to hear patient and caregiver thoughts, questions and feelings on this subject. Do you have hope? What questions and concerns do you have about the future? We look forward to a great discussion together.
Audrey joined the HealthTree Foundation as the Myeloma Community Program Director in 2020. While not knowing much about myeloma at the start, she has since worked hard to educate herself, empathize and learn from others' experiences. She loves this job. Audrey is passionate about serving others, loves learning, and enjoys a nice mug of hot chocolate no matter the weather.
