Our Ed Forum is the place to learn about our disease from WM specialists who are involved in many areas of clinical practice and research. Presentations are aimed at the layperson and address: symptoms and complications of the disease, current treatment options, new therapies, and recent research findings that may someday lead to a cure. The Ed Forum also offers breakout discussion groups on specific topics of interest to both patients and caregivers. The Ed Forum environment offers networking meetups for sharing experiences and supporting each other. Many of the medical professionals remain for the duration of the Forum which provides an opportunity for attendees to talk with the experts on an informal basis. Each Ed Forum concludes with the popular “Ask the Doctor” question-and-answer session. Presentations from past Ed Forums can be found here. Up to date information about each year’s upcoming Ed Forum can be found below.
