One of the biggest challenges for Lymphoma Australia has been ensuring that all Lymphoma patients and their families have access to up to date information about Lymphoma regardless of where you live.
With advanced technology we will be overcoming this issue with the rollout of education days that allow for live audiences at different locations but with the ability for everyone to join us online from your computer.
Over the last 12-18 months it has been a privilege to host the following international speakers at our patient & carer education days:
Professor Gilles Salles, Chair of the world leading clinical research organisation Lymphoma Study Association
Professor Mathias Rummel, from the Department for Hematology at the Justus-Liebig University-Hospital, Gießen and lead for the German lymphoma organisation STIL
