Presented by Professor H. Miles Prince AM
Professor Prince started the seminar by explaining (in layman's terms and analogies) what Myeloma is about, and went on to describe the change in the landscape of treatments available from the past and present, and how vastly different the clinical practice guidelines and mechanism of actions of those treatments are in relation to the timelines as we move towards the future.

Topic: Managing expecations - A Personal Experience
Presented by Matt Riley
Matt shares his perspectives on the learnings that he has experienced with Myeloma. He fosters dialogue with the audience that Myeloma is such an individual disease, and he has come a long way and is very grateful for his recovery, and to those who has supported him - such as his family, friends and health professionals in the hospital that he was attending whilst receiving treatment. He hopes to encourage others with his story facing similar challenges.
