Myeloma UK have developed a series of Digital Infoday Sessions to continue providing information and support to patients following the cancellation of our usual Infoday events programme.
The online events take place in a variety of formats, each lasting one hour. This includes panel discussions, Q & A sessions and presentations each centred around a specific topic. The events are broadcasted live on Zoom and Facebook as well as being recorded and uploaded onto the Myeloma UK website afterwards.

The Digital Infoday Sessions we have already held have had over 1100 views and received excellent feedback from both the healthcare professionals involved and patients who have watched.
These events are primarily aimed at patients, their friends and family so you can signpost them to this great source of information. Healthcare professionals are also welcome to register and watch the events.
