We are pleased to have completed the 3rd annual Women & MPN conference on Friday, September 29th, in Los Angeles. We had wonderful speakers and a lively panel discussion on issues impacting women and all those living with MPNs. One recurring theme was revealed by the newly diagnosed attendees; their physicians didn’t seem to know a lot about their ET, PV or MF and gave little support or direction to resources. MPN Advocacy & Education International is committed to a more vigorous outreach program to physicians and will continue to provide direction, education and resources to all patients and caregivers lacking the support they need. Our special guest, Emmy-award winning actress, Finola Hughes, will be a great spokesperson for the MPN community because of her ability to reach much greater numbers through the media.
