5th International Doctor-Patient Forum on WM, London 2014
Jointly sponsored by IWMF and WMUK. Patient Track Part of IWWM8 doctor workshop. Open to all, worldwide, including families of patients and interested medical professionals. Over 200 now attending. The last few places are now being offered, then registration will close.

The 2014 International Forum is one of the most important events of 2014 for the WM community worldwide.   It comes at the end of the IWWM8 (the 8th WM International Workshop) meeting for doctors organised by the Bing Centre for WM at Harvard, and a distinguished selection of the doctors coming to London from around the world will be with us on the Sunday to present the many new advances in treatment and care of WM.  The highlight of the day is likely to be a presentation from Dr Steven Treon (r) and his Dana-Farber team from the Bing Centre outlining the latest research and trials involving Ibrutinib (Imbruvica®), which is emerging as a breakthrough therapy in many B cell related diseases, including WM.  

The Forum is jointly organised and sponsored by WMUK and the IWMF
