The Norwegian Blood Cancer Society in collaboration with WM Skandinavien invites patients and relatives to a seminar about the diagnosis Waldenstrøm's Macroglobulinemia and Aplastic Anemia.
Date:              September 11, 2018
Where:           Thon hotel Rosenkrantz, Oslo, Norway
We are proud to cooperate with the Norway’s foremost clinicians in this area. In addition, we have a desire to offer group conversations where those affected can share experience with each other and associate social networks with the blood cancer community's people. Since there are two different diagnoses, we have chosen to split the day into two with a common part in the middle. Participants themselves can choose what they want to attend. The seminar is a collaboration between the Blood Cancer Society and WM Skandinavien.
The seminar is free, but we must have your application.
If you have any questions about the seminar, please contact us at
