Medicine and me: Living with lymphoma
The Medicine and Me series of meetings aim to update us all on important conditions and gives a direct voice to patients and their carers to air their concerns on the impact of diagnosis, investigation and management.
The audience at this meeting comprised of those with living with lymphoma, their families, carers and advocates, representing about 70% of those present; and clinicians and researchers, representing not more than 30%.
This event took place on Thursday 15 September 2016 at the Royal Society of Medicine in London. This meeting was organised jointly with the Lymphoma Association who celebrated their 30th Anniversary.
