Myeloma/COVID-19 Past Webinars

These are the past webinars by the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) and Levine Cancer Institute (LCI).  

For me these webinars are encouraging.  I see the passion each of these medical experts have to keep their myeloma patients safe.  Also the collaborative effort to share information about COVID-19 and its impact on myeloma patients is astonishing.  All these videos are available on YouTube.  
Past discussions can be found on the MMRF’s YouTube page.
