Gracias por su comentario y lo sentimos mucho que su hermana padece de leucemia. Parece que ella esta recibiendo un cuidado medico muy atento en Barcelona pero entendemos que ustedes desean investigar todos los tratamientos posibles. Por ahora no tenemos una sede en Europa únicamente en Arizona, Florida, y Minnesota. El siguiente enlace le dará mas información sobre las investigaciones clínicas en Europa https://www.clinicaltrialsregister.eu/ctr-search/search y este enlace explica mas sobre la viroterapia y la mieloma multiple http://newsnetwork.mayoclinic.org/discussion/mayo-clinic-primera-en-demostrar-que-viroterapia-es-esperanzadora-en-mieloma-multiple. También Mayo Clinic tiene muy buena información en ingles sobre otros recursos http://www.lls.org/diseaseinformation/getinformationsupport/ y http://www.cancercare.org/diagnosis/leukemia?diagnosis=leukemia.

Saludos,
Susana

Thanks for posting your concerns. Did you speak with one of the Mayo patient financial representatives at 480-301-7033? They may be able to suggest another option for you. Here's a link to more information on Mayo's charity care program http://www.mayoclinic.org/billing-rst/charity.html.

In-Flight Incidents and Sleeping Pills Survey

Dr. Lois Krahn, sleep specialist at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, is conducting a brief survey to find out the consequences of taking sleeping pills during airline flights. We're hoping to gather enough data to determine how best to reduce the risk of in-flight incidents related to sleeping pills. Please take a few moments to complete our survey, thanks! https://redcap1.mayo.edu/surveys/index.php?hash=6c4b761a28b734fe93831e3fb400ce87

Hello. I believe that last year the Symposium was held in Rochester, MN. However, it's certainly possible that future symposiums will be scheduled in Rochester again.Thanks for your question and let me know if I can be of further help.

As a two time survivor of Breast Cancer, I am very interested in this Symposium. Any chance it will be offered in Rochester?
