Update from the Patient Educational Forum in Atlanta, Georgia

The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation enjoyed true southern hospitality at the Patient Educational Forum held in Atlanta, Georgia in October 2013. We were joined by Drs. Lisa Grandinetti and Oleg Akilov from the University of Pittsburgh (pictured below with CLF's Susan Thornton). Dr. Grandinetti provided an overview of the diagnosis and staging of cutaneous lymphoma and Dr. Akilov  spoke about early treatment, providing many practical recommendations.

Questions were taken and answered throughout the clinical sessions and in between, providing the attendees a valuable opportunity ask about their specific situations.

Comments from attendees:

This (PEF) completely re-energized me as a caregiver and encouraged me to learn more.

I appreciated the talk not being too technical.

I thought the program was very informative...(and I found most helpful) the practical info about clothing, lotions and shampoo.

Personal interaction with the doctors was helpful.
