CME Bottom Up! Patients Taking an Active Role in Research and Self-Advocacy
Description: Chaya Venkat knows CLL all too well. After her husband P.C. was diagnosed in 2002, the couple began CLL Topics, a website that collects and reviews the latest research. Having shared the stories and struggles of hundreds of CLL patients over the last few years, Chaya stresses that all patients should take an active role in selecting an oncologist, conducting research and participating in advocacy. While she is optimistic about continued progress in CLL treatment and research, she encourages the whole community of stakeholders -- patients, doctors, researchers, caregivers and advocates -- to keep on working towards the common goal of defeating CLL.
