Statement of Need

Multiple myeloma has twice the incidence and death rate in Black people, compared with White people. Yet, Black people are half as likely to undergo a stem cell transplantation despite having similar, if not better, survival rates compared to White people, when given standard of care treatment. Chasms in early diagnosis, treatment options and access, survival rate, and more, remain for racial and ethnic underserved populations. A culmination of biases, disparities, and inequities continues a cycle of inadequate oncology treatment for multiple myeloma, thus resulting in delayed diagnosis, and suboptimal clinical management, prognosis, and survival rate.

This live Q&A session is your opportunity to ask questions based on the CME Outfitters BriefCase that focused on identifying the impact of health inequities on patients with multiple myeloma.
