Carole Brennan Miller, M.D., head of the Cancer Institute at Saint Agnes Hospital, works with many people who have myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). When asked what she likes about working with this group, she explained that because their cancer is more of a chronic disease that they live with for a long time, they often have multiple touchpoints with the medical community, know a lot about their disease, advocate for themselves, and tend to be interested in exploring different treatment options.
