Washington St., Easton). The talk, Understanding Clinical Trials: Key Concepts and Questions for Your Doctor, is free and open to the public. Nurse Lederer, study director for several multiple myeloma clinical trials at Greenebaum, will discuss a variety of basic concepts and topics related to clinical trials as well as helpful questions for cancer patients and their families to have in mind when discussing entering a clinical trial with their physician. Nurse Lederer’s presentation should also be of interest to those experiencing other blood cancers other such as leukemia and lymphoma.

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.
