Resources for Meeting the Needs of Multiple Myeloma Patients & their Families

Patricia P. Plaskon (PhD, LCSW-C, OSW-C), Coordinator of Oncology Social Work at Shore Regional Cancer Center, will speak at the quarterly meeting the Chesapeake Multiple Myeloma Network (CMMN) on Saturday, February 1, at 4:00 PM in the first floor Meeting Rooms A & B of the Shore Memorial Hospital’s Nick Rajacich Health Education Center (219 S. Washington St., Easton). The talk, which is free and open to the public, will focus on the economic, educational, and social resources available on the eastern shore and nationally to meet the needs of multiple myeloma patients and their families.

The Chesapeake Multiple Myeloma Network (CMMN) is an informal eastern-shore group of individuals affected by multiple myeloma.  Its mission is “to provide ongoing resources of information, support, shared experiences, and hope for persons with multiple myeloma, their families, and friends.” CMMN’s meetings last about an hour and a half.

The Nick Rajacich Health Education Center is the brick building to the right of the Memorial Hospital main lobby entrance on Washington Street. Enter the Rajacich Center from Washington St. and take the first hallway on the right. Go through a set of double doors and Meeting Rooms A & B will be on your immediate left.
