Vancouver Amyloidosis meeting at Myeloma Canada conference.

The Myeloma Canada national conference 2018 Vancouver is a 2 day event focusing on treatment and management of that disease. Most of you will have realized the similarity of the journey of the myeloma and amyloidosis patients using stem cell transplants, the same drug profiles and side effect management. Therefore registering for the entire conference will be
advantageous to all

However the most exciting portion for our group will be the 2 hour Amyloidosis breakout session on Saturday, May 12 with the outstanding doctors present there to explain the disease as well as to answer your personal question. Dr Joe Mikhael grew up in Toronto and spent several years at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre before being grabbed by Mayo
Clinic Scottsdale. He has an extensive background in amyloidosis reatment. Dr Chris Venner trained at the prestigious National Amyloidosis Centre, UK , before returning to Edmonton and establishing an advanced Canadian program at Cross Cancer Centre.

The CASN appreciates the opportunity to bring together amyloidosis patients, allow for networking, perhaps to meet in a sharing atmosphere as well as to benefit from all the knowledge to be gained from the conference speakers. The early bird rate of $40per person is highly subsidized and does include breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks.
