MPN Advocacy & Education International Goes to Australia
On April 29, 2017, MPN Advocacy & Education International and their partners, MPN Alliance Australia, brought the very first patient/caregiver education program to Australia. This concerted effort took months to prepare and a collaboration that has strengthened our commitment to the MPN communities around the world. Over 150 patients and caregivers joined us for a daylong program. Australian and American MPN specialists presented timely and reliable information to this growing population. The extraordinary benefits to patients and caregivers at these events is invaluable. These programs empower patients with the knowledge they need to better understand the complexities of MPNs.
