Patient Power Co-Founder Esther Schorr is joined by MPN patient advocate Julia Olff, and MPN expert Dr. Gail J. Roboz, for an in-depth conversation about how telemedicine, patient health portals and Internet resources are making it easier than ever to add a super-specialized MPN expert to your medical team. It is no longer necessary to choose between the community oncologist you love and the far away MPN expert in another city. You can have both.
