Ed Forum 2016 SGL

Colorado & S Wyoming

Happy End of Summer!  We hope you had a safe, healthy, and fun summer.

Our fall WM support group meeting for Colorado and So Wyoming is coming up soon.  We are planning an important WM update from Dr. Jeffrey Matous of the Colorado Blood Cancer Institute in Denver.  Dr. Matous will attend the 9th annual International WM Physician's summit in Amsterdam Oct. 6-8th and plans to update us later in October with all he learns.  He will report on new findings, new research, new trials, and even more new drugs on the horizon.  Dr. Matous plans to give us the latest on all this for WM. Our meeting will be different (it's over lunch this time):

                     Saturday, October 29th, from 11:30am to 2:30pm
in the Colorado North Room at Presbyterian/St. Luke's hospital

We plan to have sign in, mingling & sharing, a lite lunch (sponsored by the LLS) at 11:30am.  The meeting will start at about noon.   Dr. Matous will talk for about an hour and have plenty of time for questions & discussion following.  We plan to wrap up by 2 or 2:30pm. Come, bring your questions, and discuss your issues with other WMers and hear the update about our disease first hand from Dr. Matous.  Please contact cindyfurst@gmail.com to reserve your spot.
Where:   Our meeting will be held on the first floor of the Presbyterian/St. Luke's hospital at 19th & Gilpin in Denver, CO. Free underground parking is available at the Main entrance.  Proceed into the hospital entrance at 19th & Gilpin, go down and to your left into the parking garage.  Walk out and into the hospital entrance, by the library.  Our room, the Colorado North conference room, is directly across from the library and near the cafeteria on the first floor of the hospital.  It is the same room we used last year for our fall meeting.
