Rising Sun 2011: CML Patient advocates from Asian countries convened in Singapore

Rising SunOn 18-20 March 2011, patient representatives from 16 countries met in Singapore for the conference "Rising Sun 2011", the second annual meeting for CML advocates from the Asia-Pacific region. This event was truly a "dream come true" for Asian CML advocates, giving them an opportunity to meet peers, develop tight connections and learn from each other. With this year's representatives from China, Hong Kong, Korea, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, Rising Sun had become a key meeting for CML patient groups. Speakers from these countries were joined by speakers from Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Switzerland and the USA.

The main focus of the meeting is on advocacy and capacity building, with topics ranging from the use of social media to meeting the needs of children with CML.
