“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

- Maya Angelou

“I need to see my own beauty and to continue to be reminded that I am enough, that I am worthy of love without effort, that I am beautiful, that the texture of my hair and that the shape of my curves, the size of my lips, the color of my skin, and the feelings that I have are all worthy and okay.” —Tracee Ellis Ross

Myeloma Link

"Empowering Black Communities through Free Educational Outreach and Enhanced Access to Care."

"Black Americans have at least double the incidence of myeloma as any other race or ethnicity, and recent studies show they face additional barriers and lower access to care. As advocates for health equity, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is determined to erase these disparities.  Carried out by LLS staff and volunteers in 13 Black communities across the country, Myeloma Link is an education and outreach initiative that directly connects Black patients and caregivers to trusted, free myeloma information and support and enhances access to care and the latest treatments."

 

Our goal: empower Black myeloma patients, caregivers, survivors, and families by increasing their access to education on and treatments for this disease.

Learn how you can participate by calling 1-844-955-LINK or emailing MyelomaLink@LLS.org today.

Get involved in Health Research

The All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve precision medicine. The NIH is aiming to enroll 50% of people from different racial and ethnic minorities in the program.
 
Unlike a single research study focused on a specific disease or population, All of Us will serve as a national research resource to inform thousands of studies, covering a wide variety of health conditions. To learn more about how you can participate in this important program, visit www.JoinAllofUs.org/together.
