The MPN Education Foundation and the Mayo Clinic invite you to attend the patient-doctor conference in Scottsdale AZ.

Additionally, we will cover topics such as genetics, interpreting blood counts, which questions to address with our doctor, coping emotionally with a chronic disease and other issues that can arise because of such a diagnosis.
