The Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Program at Duke University Medical Center will hold a patient reunion on Saturday, June 6, from 11:30 - 2:30 p.m. at the Von Canon Hall, lower level, in the Bryan Center on Duke's West Campus. Reporters and photographers are invited to cover the event. Please contact Rebecca Levine.
More than 250 patients and family members are expected to attend the reunion. A key component of the program will be the opportunity for patients to speak to the group about their experiences during and following transplantation.
