If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN), staying informed about the latest progress in MPN research is the most effective way to understand your options and properly manage your care and treatment. We are excited to announce that on Saturday, May 5th, in Aurora, CO, Patient Power and its partner, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, will host a town meeting, featuring MPN experts Dr. Brandon McMahon and Nurse Practitioner, Lindsey Lyle, as well as Dr. Naval Daver from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, clinicians and patient advocates.

This free, educational event for MPN patients and care partners gathers specialists, devoted clinicians and patient advocates—all under one roof! The panel will be discussing the latest treatment and MPN research, and provide tips and strategies for optimizing your quality of life with polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) or myelofibrosis (MF).  

By attending this town meeting, you will have the unique opportunity to meet and connect with other patients and care partners living with MPNs. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to interact with a team of experts to get your MPN questions answered.
