This autumn MPN Advocates Network put out a call for nominations to serve on the Steering Committee for three available spots. We had a strategic goal of identifying people from areas of the world not already represented on the Steering Committee. Happily, our call was answered by three individuals who have ample experience in advocacy, rendering no need for a vote.
We are therefore thrilled to welcome Lyat Granati from Max Foundation, Chile; Param Puthen who is a leader in several blood cancer groups in India as well as Trustee at Friends of Max; Ken Young of MPN Alliance Australia.
You can read their CV and statements here.
This was part of our move towards being more responsive to the membership as well as transparent into the process by which our leaders are selected. As more opportunities to get involved in MPNAN become available, be sure that we will let you know how to take part.
