Education is key for patients and their loved ones to be true partners in their treatment. CLL Live conferences provide participants with an opportunity to hear from leading experts in CLL research and care from around the world, who volunteer their time to speak at our conferences. As a result, conference attendees are better informed and equipped to ask their healthcare team pertinent questions about their own treatment plan.
