On Thursday, October 17th, MEPSHP had a dinner/meeting at Melt in Center Valley, PA. We had a promotional talk by Incyte Pharmaceuticals entitled, Understanding Myelofibrosis. Our featured speaker was Linda Perry, MA, PA-C from the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. She discussed the different forms of Myelofibrosis. We learned that Myelofibrosis is a type of bone marrow cancer that causes significant scarring in the bone marrow. Symptoms includes severe anemia, weakness and fatigue. We learned about the life expectancy of the different types of Myelofibrosis and various types of treatment options.

Our next meeting is on Wednesday, November 6th, at Hamilton Kitchen and Bar in Allentown, PA. There will be a two-hour CE on medical cannabis featuring Dr. Christine Roussel, Director of Pharmacy at Doylestown Hospital. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
