ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Lymphoma Rounds program provides a forum for local practicing physicians from academic and community medical centers to meet on a regular basis and address issues specific to the diagnosis and treatment of their lymphoma patients. Physicians network, share best practices and learn the latest information on new therapies and advances in the management of lymphoma through interactive case studies presented by lymphoma experts in the local area.

At the conclusion of this educational activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Summarize the latest developments in lymphoma diagnosis, treatment and management.
  • Apply best practices for treating lymphoma patients.
  • Inform patients about potential clinical trial opportunities.
  • Establish a network of health care professionals who work with lymphoma patients.
