Recognizing Advancements and the Individuals Who Made Them in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms


In this episode of the “CURE Talks Cancer” podcast, we spoke with Dr. Laura Michaelis, a 2019 CURE MPN Hero, about how far we’ve come in the myeloproliferative neoplasm space.

In this special edition, CURE spoke with Dr. Laura Michaelis, a specialist in hematology and oncology at Froedtert Hospital and Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and also a recipient of the 2019 MPN Heroes Award.

Michaelis has a mission statement to live up to when she’s treating patients: “deliver superb care in a compassionate, individualized manner.” As an MPN Hero, Michaelis has gone above and beyond to offer outstanding healthcare in and outside of the clinic, regularly speaking to MPN patient support groups to provide important information and answers in a more personal setting.

She spoke with CURE about how far we’ve come in the MPN space, how we can address current challenges moving forward, and what being an MPN Hero means to her.
