Lunch & Learn on Ocular GVHD

This month’s telephone educational and support program will focus on Ocular GVHD (oGVHD), a frequent, rapidly-progressive organ manifestation of chronic GVHD with characteristic inflammatory, immune dysregulatory and fibrotic manifestations. Ocular GVHD occurs usually 5-18 months post transplant and severely reduces quality of life after bone marrow transplantation due to severe eye discomfort.

Sandeep Jain, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology, and the Director of the UIC Dry Eye & Ocular GVHD clinic at the Univ. of Chicago will share treatment options including a step-down approach sure to bring relief and improve quality of life. As well, Marilyn Wroblewski, a patient, will share her personal experience and best tips. The nbmtLINK’s licensed staff social worker, Jennifer Gillette, will facilitate the program. There will also be plenty of time for live questions.
