This month’s telephone educational and support program will focus on the love/hate of steroids as they relate to chronic GVHD. Dr. Masumi Ueda Oshima, Assistant Professor and Assistant Medical Director for the Inpatient Adult BMT Program at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance/University of Washington will break it down for us and share her expertise. Sharde Fultz, a chronic GVHD survivor, will share her personal experience including details about how she has managed steroid use and GVHD through the years. The nbmtLINK’s licensed staff social worker, Jennifer Gillette, will facilitate the program. There will also be plenty of time for live questions.
