27th Annual IWMF Virtual Educational Forum

The 27th Annual IWMF Educational Forum provides a unique opportunity to learn and connect with and from one another. The 2022 Virtual Ed Forum brings WM specialists, clinicians, researchers, patients, and caregivers together. A two-day program features pertinent and timely information related to symptoms and complications of WM, current treatment options, new therapies, and life topics that align with this year’s Ed Forum theme:  Living, Learning, and Thriving with WM. This year’s Educational Forum concluded with our popular “Ask the Doctors” question-and-answer session.
