Please save the date and plan to attend. I’d love to meet as many of you as I possibly can.
Special thanks to one of my female AML readers who contacted me to inform me she had recommended me as a panelist. I appreciate you. Thanks again.
Everyone else, especially my East Coast readers, I look forward to seeing you there. Please don’t be shy. Do come up and say “hello” when you see me.
