Important IWMF Update: 2021 Educational Forum
09 Apr, 2021

To the IWMF Community,

We want to let you know that after very careful consideration and with input from our WM medical experts, we have made the decision that our 2021 Ed Forum will be a completely virtual event. We are disappointed that we will not be together in October, but the safety and health of our participants and faculty is our number one concern.

We are excited to announce an entire month of educational workshops in October 2021, culminating in our Virtual Educational Forum. These workshops are for all members of the WM community – from newly diagnosed patients, to 25+ year WM veterans, and everyone in-between. These workshops, led by some of the top WM physicians and researchers, will help lay the educational groundwork for this year’s Virtual Educational Forum.
