The 2013 installment of OMF’s popular Eye Am Not Alone (EANA) Patient Retreat is now underway Friday, November 1 through Sunday, November 3 at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA.The retreat will combine expert medical information with the ‘softer side’ of battling OM: plenty of interaction other patients, leading OM experts from around the country, cancer therapists, and other OM community members. Targeted at patients, their families and friends, the retreat will mirror OMF’s ground-breaking 2010 conference at the Dana-Farber Cancer Center and its follow-up in Washington, DC in March 2012.
OMF worked with the patient community, its Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) and Jefferson/Wills to construct an agenda best meeting the needs of the OM community.
