David Alexander was selected as an MPN Hero at this year's MPN Heroes event. The MPN Heroes event honors clinicians, caregivers, and advocates who have made significant contributions in the field of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs).
Alexander, from Washington, D.C., is an advocate who was nominated for his efforts to help patients keep up with the latest research and publications on MPNs and for his role in the online support group MPN-NET. An environmental lawyer and marathon runner, David believes in “the magic of every day.” He is a moderator of MPN-NET whose prodigious postings of technical hematology material bring current scientific knowledge to the MPN community. He was selected as a Hero in the Commitment to the Broader MPN Community.
By sharing the latest scientific findings, David’s goal is to help patients be aware about treatment advances, clinical studies, the nature of risk, and how to use risk to maintain a balanced life with MPNs.
