Lymphoma Research Foundation Hosting Major Lymphoma Forum Nov 9-11


The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF), the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted entirely to lymphoma research, outreach and awareness, will be hosting its 17th annual North American Educational Forum on Lymphoma in Manhattan Beach, California, from November 9th to November 11th, 2012.

This Forum is a two-and-a-half day program that provides critical information on treatment options, support issues, clinical trials, and the latest advances in lymphoma research. It is widely considered to be the most comprehensive lymphoma-specific education conference in North America.

This year's Forum co-chairs are:

-- Bruce Cheson, MD, FACP, FAAAS – Deputy Chief of the Division of Hematology-Oncology and Head of Hematology at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown University Hospital

-- John Leonard, MD – the Richard T. Silver Distinguished Professor of Hematology and Medical Oncology and Associate Dean for Clinical Research at Weill Cornell Medical College

"As co-chair of this year’s Educational Forum, I am honored to bring together and present with such renowned experts in the field of lymphoma," said Dr. Leonard.

"This Forum is so important for patients, survivors and caregivers because it enables them to gain a better understanding of their particular subtype of lymphoma and the current treatment options available so that they can become active participants in their care."

This year’s Forum will feature information on disease and treatment and offer unique networking opportunities for those in attendance to meet others with the same lymphoma subtype.

"The Lymphoma Research Foundation’s Educational Forum provides an opportunity for members of the lymphoma community to learn about the disease from some of the world’s leading lymphoma experts and to meet others with the same subtype of the disease," said Brian Tomlinson, LRF’s Chief Program Officer.

"With more than 70 subtypes, lymphoma is a complex diagnosis; the ability the Forum affords to ask questions of such prominent experts and to meet others who have had similar experiences is invaluable for patients and their loved ones."

The Forum is open to all members of the public. There is a $50 registration fee. Information on registration and other aspects of the Forum can be found HERE or by calling (800)500-9976.
