1.0 CME, MOC, NCPD, CPE, ECMEC® reciprocal

Activity Description

New and emerging advancements in the treatment of follicular lymphoma (FL) are on the horizon. Are you and your clinical teams up for the challenge of testing your skill in applying the latest clinical evidence to these groundbreaking therapies? Join us at this independent satellite symposium for an engaging learning experience, where you’ll have the chance to compete against your colleagues in complex clinical cases of follicular lymphoma. Tune into our panel of experts as they discuss:

  • Prognostic tools in evaluating and managing patients with FL, empowering you to make well-informed decisions about prognosis to tailor treatment plans accordingly
  • The latest clinical evidence surrounding new and emerging therapies, differentiated by mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety profiles, to optimize treatment outcomes
  • Treatment selection for patients with relapsed/refractory FL, considering crucial factors such as prior therapy history, disease characteristics, and individual patient factors

The lunch symposium, brought to you by Medical Learning Institute, Inc. (MLI), and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), will be certified for continuing education credit for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists and will offer American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification points. Don’t miss this exciting symposium—register today to reserve your spot!
