Multiple Myeloma Specialists in the News!

Recently I have noticed that some of the most skilled myeloma professionals in the world have been in the news, and I have put together a summary of their activities and links:


This program by Dr. Hofmeister is one I am very excited about.  He looks to put me out of business, and I hope and pray he is successful.  Dr. Craig Hofmeister discusses a ground breaking effort to bring Myeloma Survival Rates to Everyone.  He was the special guest on Pat Killingworth’s Myeloma On Line Support Group on October 29.  You can listen to this informative broadcast if you just CLICK HERE!


Dr. Richardson of Dana Farber Cancer Institute is a Myeloma Rock Star.   Dr. Richardson is British, innovative, and truly remarkable.  And like the Beatles, with Dr. Richardson’s leadership there  is going to be a “REVOLUTION” in myeloma survival rates.  He discusses the question:  “To Transplant or not to Transplant?”  You can listen to the rebroadcast of this program  if you CLICK HERE.  Please listen, it is a can’t miss educational opportunity,  so “DON’T LET ME DOWN”.


Dr. James Berenson was recently interviewed  by NPR (National Public Radio)  Topical Currents looks at Multiple Myeloma, a rare blood disease of malignant cells found in bone marrow.  They visit with Dr. James Berenson, the Director and Founder of the Institute for Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research. Berenson’s Myeloma-related research can benefit all cancers where bone metastasis is a threat, particularly breast, lung  and prostate cancers as well as lymphoma and leukemia.

Dr. Bart Barlogie is synonymous with myeloma treatment approach that hits the disease hard right at the beginning with intense treatment with multi drugs, transplants, consolidation, and maintenance to keep it under control. Dr. Barlogie is Founder & Director, Myeloma Institute at UAMS, Little Rock and is considered to be one of the best myeloma experts one could get treated under if diagnosed, and has some of the best survival rates for myeloma patients in the world.  He was recently outlined in the Little Rock paper, but I like the summary by Priya Menon of Cure Talk, which you can read if you CLICK HERE.

If you are in the care of any of these exceptional Multiple Myeloma specialists you are either very lucky or just extremely smart and probably blessed.   Gary Petersen
