The Multiple Myeloma Ireland Patient & Carer Information Day 2022 will take place on May 27th at the Ashling Hotel in Dublin. As always, a wide range of clinicians and healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with multiple myeloma will gather to offer expert advice and new insights into the condition and its management. As the first in-person Patient Day since 2019, it is highly anticipated.
Diarmuid Duggan is the Dietetic Manager in the Department of Nutrition & Dietetics at the Bon Secours Health System in Cork. He will present on multiple myeloma and diet, as this is a key concern for patients who are seeking to nourish themselves appropriately during treatment and beyond.
