The Maddie Riewoldt’s Patient and Family Forum(s)

November 2022

The Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision Centre of Research Excellence in Bone Marrow Biology is pleased to invite you to their third Patient and Family Forum(s) on Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes. The forum(s) will be hosted on Zoom webinar and will again include expert clinicians, scientists and allied health professionals, presenting information about the latest treatments, research results and clinical trials while also featuring some personal perspectives shared by patients and/or their families.

This year, the event will be slightly different and consist of four 2-hour specialised sessions run weekly in the evening during November. Each session will concentrate on a specific topic and you are invited to attend all sessions or only the sessions you would find of interest. With appreciation of sponsorship, registration is at no cost.
