The Canadian Patient-Physician Conference was held on October 24, 2009 at the Grand Hotel & Suites, Toronto, Canada. Additional information about the hotel can be found on their website at http://www.grandhoteltoronto.com.

This was a one-day Conference, which brought together over 100 patients, family members and caregivers to share the ongoing progress in research on the genetic basis, pathogenesis, and treatment of WM. We hope this conference helped enrich each attendee's understanding of WM, and helped foster dialogue which will lead to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of this disease and to its cure.
This conference was made possible through the kind and generous unrestricted grants or gifts from the Grand Hotel and Suites, Toronto, the Bing Center for WM, and the WMFC.
