All Meetings

Q.
Who can attend, and what will be discussed?
A.

These meetings are for adults living with polycythemia vera (PV) and myelofibrosis (MF), as well as their friends and personal support team. Each meeting will review information about Jakafi® (ruxolitinib) as a possible treatment option. They are not designed for those living with Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease (aGVHD).

The presenters at these meetings will not provide medical advice. Your healthcare professional is the best source of information about your condition.


Q.
Can I bring guests?
A.
Up to 4 friends, family members, or members of your personal support team are welcome to attend as well. Note that at this time, meetings hosted by Incyte are only available for U.S. residents.

Q.
How long is each meeting?
A.
Meetings hosted by Incyte are typically between 1.5 and 2 hours and can be attended either locally or online. The duration of each meeting depends on the number of questions asked by participants.

Q.
What is the difference between a local and an online meeting?
A.

Local meetings are held in person at a local hotel or meeting space. You will have the opportunity to meet and speak with other adults living with PV and MF and an Oncology Clinical Nurse Educator (OCNE).


Online meetings are offered for those who are unable to attend a local meeting. They are an easy way to experience a meeting from the comfort of your home. The same experienced OCNEs who present at the local meetings present the online meetings.


Q.
Will I receive a confirmation email and reminder after I register?
A.
Following registration, you will receive an email providing the time, place, directions, and in the case of online meetings, your meeting link. You can also refer to the meeting details page for the meeting you registered for or call us to confirm. Our phone number is (919) 256-2472. A reminder email is sent 2 days before the meeting. If you opt in during registration, you may also receive a phone call confirmation and a text confirming the date, time, and location of the meeting.

Q.
How much does it cost to attend?
A.
There is no cost to attend a meeting.

Q.
Who are the presenters? Are the online presenters the same as the local presenters?
