International Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation



The 21st IWMF Ed Forum will be held in Providence, RI, on June 10-12, at the Omni Providence Hotel downtown, so make your plans now to attend. The theme this year is Imagine a Cure: Pathways to Progress to highlight the exciting Strategic Research Roadmap Initiative recently begun by the IWMF and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. To preview the agenda, click here.

The Ed Forum presents an excellent opportunity to hear about the latest in research and treatments, meet new friends, renew old friendships, and enjoy Providence. This historic city was named 33rd out of the top 52 places to go to in 2016 in a recent New York Times article(link is external).

This year we have a new and exciting addition to the agenda! Friday morning offers a special 3-hour session for the newly diagnosed and first timers to the Ed Forum, and it kicks off with a continental breakfast at 8:00 AM. This promises to be just the right way for newcomers to ease into the Forum and all the information that will follow. You should check the appropriate box on the registration form if you plan to attend this session.

Please don’t forget to make your own room reservation. You can come 3 days early and/or stay 3 days after the conclusion of the Forum at our special rate of $145 per day plus tax, for as long as room availability lasts. So be sure to book your room early!

We hope to see you in Providence!
