Event description

Description

This is the 3rd Annual SF Bay Area MPN Conference for Patients. You will have the opportunity to hear the latest research and engage with four experts in the MPN clinical and scientific community. Confirmed to attend are Dr. Ayalew Tefferi from the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Ross Levine from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Dr. Vincent Ho from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Dr. Lloyd Damon from UCSF Medical Center. The event will include the latest research, therapies and news from our distinguished guests. This is a full-day event that will allow plenty of time for your questions and an opportunity to connect with other people living with PV, ET and MF. To ensure the proper ratio of patient and family members to medical experts, we are limiting the meeting to the first 100 people who sign up.
