“MIRT Connection Ambassador” Program

Experienced Patients Available to Assist New Patients

The Myeloma Institute has enlisted a team of experienced patient ambassadors across the U.S. to serve as advisors and sounding boards for new patients.

Experienced patients know better than anyone what new patients are going through. They can be good listeners and alleviate concerns.

If you are considering coming to the Myeloma Institute as a new patient and would like to be connected with an experienced Myeloma Institute patient please contact Sonya Thornes at 501-650-0193 or SRThornes@uams.edu

We can “connect” you with a patient who lives near you and/or whose situation is similar (for example, similar age, similar family situation, etc.).
