ASH 2016: Patient Perspective with John Auerbacher

| John Auerbacher

In this video, co-leader of the White Plains/Westchester (NY) Multiple Myeloma Support Group and myeloma patient John Auerbacher says this about the 58th American Society of Hematology meeting: “If ever we worried there would be enough researchers in multiple myeloma, we would be wrong.” He comments that while attending meetings with the depth and intricacy of scientific research that take place at ASH, it’s natural for a patient to ask himself, “How is the research going to affect me?” He encourages patients not to “analyze” the data on their own, but rather partner with their myeloma specialist. He encourages myeloma patients to reach out to the IMF’s InfoLine to find a multiple myeloma specialist in their area.
