PHILADELPHIA, PA (June 14, 2011) On June 15, the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF), in collaboration with the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center, will bring together lymphoma experts to discuss the latest practices in the diagnosis and management of lymphoma. This event is the final installation of LRF's 2010-2011 Philadelphia Lymphoma Rounds program, a continuing medical education (CME) series focused on the diagnosis and treatment of lymphoma patients.

"The Philadelphia Lymphoma Round Program is an opportunity for clinicians to better understand the latest lymphoma treatment advancements and apply these findings to their practice," said Anthony Mato, M.D., Program Chair and Lymphoma Attending at the John Theurer Cancer Center. "The treatment of lymphoma is rapidly changing, and we are committed to forums like this to keep the latest information accessible to physicians across the country."

The Lymphoma Rounds program provides a forum for local healthcare professionals to meet on a regular basis and address issues specific to the diagnosis and treatment of their lymphoma patients. Participants network, share best practices and learn the latest information on new therapies and advances in the management of lymphoma through interactive case studies presented by local lymphoma experts. The Philadelphia Lymphoma Rounds program is chaired by Stephen Schuster, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

"Lymphoma Rounds are an integral part of the Lymphoma Research Foundation's professional education services," said Brian Tomlinson, LRF's Chief Program Officer. "We are thrilled to work with the John Theurer Cancer Center for the final Philadelphia Lymphoma Rounds program of the 2010-2011 year, and to enable attendees to benefit from the collaboration of lymphoma experts from the leading Philadelphia-area institutions."

This program is free for healthcare professionals; however, pre-registration is required and available online. The University of Nebraska Medical Center, Center for Continuing Education designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category I Credit.
