Oncology Town Hall: Primary Investigators Present Key Abstracts in Multiple Myeloma

Release Date: August 17, 2021
Expiration Date: August 17, 2022

Activity Overview

This online, on-demand virtual symposium brings together renowned experts in multiple myeloma (MM). The treatment armamentarium for MM has expanded greatly over the last decade. As novel targeted therapies are approved in the front-line and relapsed settings, clinicians are frequently challenged with methods to personalize treatment based on patient- and disease-related factors and strategies to combine and sequence therapies to improve patient outcomes. In this educational program, experts discuss data from recently published abstracts and their effect on future treatment options and sequencing for patients with MM.

This educational activity is an archive of the live virtual symposium held on July 20, 2021.
