Clinical Trials are often considered for those at the end of their treatment who are in need of novel therapies. But is there a need for newly diagnosed patients to participate in clinical trials as well? Come hear the patient experience of myeloma patient, John Rosengard, who participated in the GRIFFIN trial when he was newly diagnosed.
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.
John Rosengard is a multiple myeloma survivor from Oakland, California. He is a patient of Dr. Nina Shah at UCSF and participated in the GRIFFIN clinical trial from 2017-2021. He works in the environmental cleanup field and worked full time through treatment…except for the weeks after the 2018 stem cell transplant! He is a MyelomaTree coach and active supporter of his fellow patients.
