Event Description

  • What is the average age of a diagnosed Black patient? 
  • How many are receiving stem cell transplants? 
  • What treatments have worked best, and which are most harmful to African American myeloma patients? 

and so much more. Knowing this information and doing something about it will lead us closer to a cure. Don't miss this amazing reveal of new data.
