9th International Patient Symposium on Myeloproliferative Neoplasms
CR&T was proud to host the 9th International Patient Symposium on MPNs on November 1, 2017. Nearly 200 guests attended the full-day educational event, which was held at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. The Symposium enables patients and caregivers to learn about the latest developments in MPN research and treatment. The program features presentations by distinguished basic scientists and clinical research physicians from the world's most prestigious MPN centers. This year, we also were pleased that Andrew Schorr of PatientPower.info, the online cancer community, conducted Facebook Live interviews with some of the presenters.
