2-Day Patient Conference - Bethesda, MD

Plan now to join us for our annual 2-Day Patient Conference!

Friday, April 21, 2023 - Sunday, April 23, 2023

The annual 2-Day Patient Conference is open to anyone affected by cutaneous lymphoma. Regardless of where you are in your journey, the conference is an opportunity to learn more about living with cutaneous lymphoma through:

  • Clinical Presentations

  • Breakout Sessions

  • Networking Opportunities

  • And more...

We are excited to hold the 2-Day Patient Conference in person again but we're also aware that not everyone is able to travel to Maryland. We will be streaming the sessions held in the main auditorium on Saturday and Sunday using Zoom. See the conference details for the registration link.


The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation invites recognized cutaneous lymphoma specialists and expert presenters to speak at our conferences to insure a depth of knowledge and expertise related to the disease and its treatment. This year's speakers include:
