The event targets those affected by multiple myeloma, an aggressive cancer of the bone marrow. Participants will hear from Dr. Usmani and a former multiple myeloma patients, and will have the opportunity to learn about the latest treatment options and breakthrough research.

Dr. Usmani was recruited to the Institute in 2013 from the University of Arkansas Cancer Center to support the expansion of the Institute’s hematologic oncology and blood disorders program. As part of the program’s expansion, the Institute opened Charlotte’s first and only blood and marrow transplant unit for treating patients with aggressive types of blood cancer on January 22. By the end of 2014, the Institute is expected to be one of the leading enrolling sites in the nation for hematology-oncology clinical trials.
