The MPN Education Foundation invites you to attend this in-person patient-doctor conference.

The conference brings together medical experts in the field with MPN patients and their care givers/families, to learn more about the many issues that are faced by those diagnosed with one of these disorders. Additionally, we will cover topics such as genetics, treatments, drug trials, interpreting blood counts, which questions to address with our doctor, coping emotionally with a chronic disease, COVID-19 in MPNs, and other issues that can arise because of such a diagnosis.

The conference will take place at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona (this is different from the Scottsdale campus location from 2019).

In addition attendees can sign up for a welcome round table luncheon which will be held Friday, February 17th, 12:00 p.m. at a new location:  Grayhawk Golf Club, 8620 East Thompson Peak Parkway Scottsdale, AZ 85255 to enable patients to meet one another and to discuss their experience with MPNs.  Dr. Susan Leclair will address common lab questions immediately following the luncheon.
