Forums for Patients and Families
In June 2019, we launched a new series of in-person forums for patients and families. These forums are held 3 to 4 times each year in different locations, providing more opportunities for everyone affected by hairy cell leukemia to stay up to date on the most current research and treatment for HCL. Each forum features a speaker from a Center of Excellence with critical expertise in HCL. These forums are shorter than the annual patient seminar.

About the Webster Library: Among the oldest libraries in New York City, the Webster Branch has a history that can be traced back to 1893, before its incorporation into The New York Public Library Branch system. Founded as the Webster Free Library, it was named after Charles B. Webster, who donated the building on East 76th Street where the library was originally located. The current site on 78th Street and York Avenue was constructed with funds donated to New York by Andrew Carnegie. To learn more, visit: www.nypl.org/locations/webster
