Understanding the Conditions, Treatments, Research,
and that You are Not Alone

A new understanding of Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs) is being shaped by developing research in the field. Experts are optimistic about new treatment options that are shaping up to improve, and potentially extend, the lives of MPN patients. On Saturday, June 7, in Chicago, IL, Patient Power and its partner, the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, will conduct an in-person forum where you will hear the latest in MPN treatment and research from world-renowned experts.

Please join us in person for this FREE interactive event to learn:

  • The latest news and information surrounding MPN research and treatment and what it means for you or a loved one
  • Inspiring stories of people living well with MPNs
  • Strategies for managing side effects and day-to-day coping skills
  • Tips for effective communication with your health care team and family members
  • Q&A: Get answers to your questions

Our expert panel will take your questions throughout the program. Local advocacy groups will also be on hand to offer support and help you connect with the MPN community.
