Leukaemia Care have organised this webinar to follow on from yesterday's webinar for people affected by a diagnosis of CLL . It will be held at 3.30PM GMT 14th October You can register in advance here: us02web.zoom.us/webinar/reg...

The webinar is to aid with understanding of CLL related immune challenges and how to manage living with these challenges. This webinar coincides with the latest annual flu vaccination and COVID -19 vaccination programme.

The aim of this webinar is to explore challenges that may be experienced when living with a compromised immunity, why these occur and how this may impact on the patient and their family. The webinar may also help with further clarification of confusing COVID vaccination issues and will also explore the topic within a COVID -19 context to discuss methods and provide advice on avoiding infection in the current stage of the pandemic.

We will be joined by:

Professor Moss who is Professor of Haematology within the Institute of Immunology and Immunotherapy at the University of Birmingham, Deputy Head of the College of Medical and Dental Sciences and he is the Clinical Service Lead for chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.

Professor Moss is an international figure in translational human immunology and an NIHR Senior Investigator. He was previously Chair of the Infection and Immunity Board at the Medical Research Council and also served as Chair of the Clinical and Translational Research Committee at Cancer Research UK. Professor Moss is currently leading the UK Coronavirus Immunology Consortium (UK-CIC), bringing together leading immunologists from 17 UK universities to understand the immune response to SARS-CoV-2.
