Salt Lake City Patient Educational Forum Update

The Salt Lake City PEF with the Huntsman Cancer Center was a great event. Dr. Wada and his team made information that can be rather clinical and difficult to understand, very accessible and occasionally entertaining. It was a great learning experience! Pictured below with CLF's Susan Thornton are Mark Hyde, PA-C (on left) and Dr. David Wada.

The afternoon highlights were the patient stories.  Gary Robinson (pictured below) used props that made us laugh as he shared his journey with mycosis fungoides. Cheryl Yasuda shared valuable tips that she has learned through her experiences with Sezary Syndrome and subsequent stem cell transplant.  We will be sharing many of her tips in an upcoming newsletter.

 Available clinician presentation slides have been posted for downloading.
