Patient Power Portland Town Hall

I had the opportunity to conduct a "CLL Town Hall" up in Portland this last weekend with Patient Power. We had about 150 patients and caregivers attend as well as another several hundred online for the live telecast. Here are the videos of our discussions.

 I was joined by Drs. Michael Keating from MD Anderson, Stephen Spurgeon from OHSU, and Kate Kolibaba from Compass Oncology in Portland / Vancouver.  We really covered the CLL landscape from both provider and patient perspectives. Each session is about an hour and a half. I hope that you can find some useful nuggets in here.

 Thanks for watching, Jeff Sharman -

The second video started out with some patient perspective and then transitioned to some of our commentary.

Seeing patients in Corvallis and points north

Dear Friends,

Blogging has become a hobby which my life has prevented me from accomplishing recently.  The good news is that I've been publishing a ton in CLL and NHL and keep working with our pharma partners to bring new therapies to patients with these diseases - the bad news is that life has gotten too busy to keep up the blogging which I really enjoy doing.

None the less, I am still trying to move the needle forward in CLL/NHL research and there are so many cool things going on, it is hard to inventory them all in one place.

I wanted to briefly post here to let you know that I am now seeing patients in Corvallis Oregon two days per month (second and fourth Thursday).  While I already have a pretty substantial population of patients who come to my clinic from Lynn/Benton and Multnomah counties, I am now a lot closer to you all.  For patients from these areas or other points north, I am happy to see you there instead of having you come all the way to Eugene.

If you would like to be seen, call my clinic 541-683-5001 and ask about being seen in Corvallis.

Secondly, I am participating in an upcoming "Town Hall" event with Patient Power on Sept 23 in Portland.  Info for the free event linked here (Sept 23 in Portland)
