STATEMENT OF NEED
Of the estimated 80,470 new cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosed each year in the United States, approximately 22% are follicular lymphoma (FL), an indolent, difficult-to-treat B-cell malignancy (ACS, 2022; NCCN, 2021). Despite the introduction of novel therapies during the past decade, complications such as delayed presentation and treatment, evolving disease subtypes, and unclear timing and duration of therapy continue to hamper patient outcomes, and multiple recurrences with available therapies are common. Additional challenges in management include a lack of consensus surrounding the optimal timing of therapy, the role of transplant, and the use of novel therapies to keep the rate of durable remissions high among patients with FL (NCCN, 2021). In this live meeting activity, expert faculty will assess current recommendations for molecular profiling that can inform individualized care plans, evaluate efficacy and safety data on emerging therapies for FL, and explain how to implement novel therapeutic strategies to optimize treatment outcomes for patients with newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory FL.
Hematology/oncology fellows, attending faculty, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with follicular lymphoma (FL).
- Evaluate molecular profiling recommendations that can inform personalized care plans for patients with FL
- Differentiate the mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety of emerging agents for FL
- Assess the clinical application of novel therapeutic strategies for patients with newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory FL
There is no fee to participate in or claim CME credit for this activity.

DISCLOSURE OF RELEVANT FINANCIAL INFORMATION WITH INELIGIBLE COMPANIES
i3 Health endorses the standards of the ACCME that require everyone in a position to control the content of a CME activity to disclose all financial relationships with ineligible companies that are related to the content of the CME activity. CME activities must be balanced, independent of commercial bias, and promote improvements or quality in health care. All recommendations involving clinical medicine must be based on evidence accepted within the medical profession.
A conflict of interest is created when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of an ineligible company with which he/she has a financial relationship, which therefore may bias their opinions and teaching.
