The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is pleased to present our 12th annual Meet the Doctors patient education program. Please join us as our guest speakers provide an overview of blood cancers, how they’re diagnosed, classified and staged; share updates about new and emerging treatments, including clinical trials, and discuss survivorship issues and coping strategies. You will also hear about the support resources available through your local cancer center and nationally through LLS.
