On Saturday, October 8, 2011, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation held a Patient Educational Forum in collaboration with Tulane University Health Sciences Center and the LSU Health Sciences Center, which welcomed over 40 attendees, many of whom were patients who enjoyed a day of education and the opportunity to connect with others who share in their journey living with cutaneous lymphoma.

This Forum also featured a very special Patient Panel with three patients – Geraldine Barton, Claudia Day, who is also a board member of the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation, and Susan Jenkins. Each of these patients shared their unique experiences about their personal journeys living with cutaneous lymphoma. This panel was definitely a highlight for our patients, caregivers and others in attendance.

The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation extends its thanks and gratitude to all of the outstanding speakers who presented at this Forum. We extend special thanks to Dr. Elizabeth McBurney for her service as Chair of this Forum.

In Forum evaluations we received, attendees noted the following:

“Meeting and talking with other cutaneous lymphoma patients was most great and the patient panel was extremely helpful”
“This event was very well-planned and it was most helpful learning about all of the treatments.”
“The comparison of cases and medical details were very helpful.”
“This was a really worthwhile forum. Well organized and the speakers were wonderful. I so enjoyed getting to know some of the patients and doctors.”

The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation thanks all of our attendees for joining us and making this event a great success. Together, we are making sure that each person with cutaneous lymphoma gets the best care possible.
