Dear Friends:

It is with great pleasure to invite you to the 5th International Patient and Physician Summit on Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia (WM).

The Summit will take place on October 13-14, 2018, at the New York Marriott Downtown Hotel and Conference Center, situated in Lower Manhattan next to the Freedom Tower.

The Summit will run concurrently with the 10th International Workshop on WM (IWWM-10), which will take place at the same venue. Over 200 investigators from around the world are expected to attend IWWM-10, and selected faculty from IWWM-10 will provide “real time” updates to attendees of the Summit on progress being made in genomics, biology, and treatment of WM, including new drugs in development for WM. Many clinical trials will be presented at IWWM-10, and attendees at the Summit will have the opportunity to hear from the investigators who are conducting these trials, and learn first-hand about new agents being developed for WM. Registration for the WM Summit itself is free, though reservations are needed due to space limitations. A limited room block has also been secured at a special rate for attendees of the Summit. Attendees will be responsible for their housing costs. Information on the Summit agenda, registration, and hotel information can be found at: http://www.waldenstromsummit.org

Additional information about planned evening events will be forthcoming. A video of previous WM Summits can be found at:


Please take the time to also let your fellow WMers know about the WM Summit. If you require additional information, please email or call me at 617 632-6285. We have much to be excited about the progress being made on WM. Come hear all about it at the WM Summit.

Sincerely yours,
