Back by popular demand, Rebekah Tobin, RN BSN, Patient Advocacy Liaison for Multiple Myeloma, will join our SoCal Myeloma Community Chapter to share Takeda Oncology’s Resource Navigator. Specifically, Rebekah will share a comprehensive review of support programs, services, and resources available from multiple organizations. Topics covered will include programs/resources related to treatment as well as financial and legal services. Rebekah is a compassionate and engaging speaker who is able to share real-world experiences and solutions. This is an important meeting, timed purposely to correspond with the end-of-year/new-year renewal times for many of the programs/resources available for myeloma patients. Even if you think you do not qualify for support, join us, you may be surprised! Only a portion of this meeting will be recorded, please join us live to receive the full-benefit of the presentation and be able to ask questions of our expert speaker.
