The IWMF’s next global webinar will be on February 9, 2021 at 1:30 pm U.S. ET. It is titled “Why Clinical Trials Matter and How to Find the Right One for You”
Neena Kennedy, a LLS Clinical Trial Nurse Navigator is the speaker. Our own Ron Ternoway, a co-leader of the WMFC Atlantic Support Group, will be the moderator.
Although there are typically not many clinical trials running in Canada, there will be one opening up soon (see “Are there WM Clinical Trials in Canada?” at our Canadian Questions page). If you are considering this specific trial, or thinking of participating in one “when the time is right”, this webinar may help with your decision processes.
From the IWMF notification: “Clinical trials are critically important to the development of new treatments, and the IWMF has always strongly supported the participation of WM patients in clinical trials. Why Clinical Trials Matter and How to Find the Right One for You will explore the different types of clinical trials and how they operate, the factors that go into making a decision about whether a trial might be right for you, and the tools that you can use to find appropriate trials for your situation.”
