      Lymphoma is a general term used for cancers of the lymphatic system. There are
      two types of lymphoma: Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. This
      teleconference series will focus on non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin's
      lymphoma (NHL) is either low-grade NHL (slow growing, often with no immediate
      treatment after diagnosis) or intermediate/ high-grade NHL (fast growing, often
      with treatment immediately following diagnosis). The first teleconference will
      focus on low-grade NHL; the second on intermediate/high-grade NHL. Each seminar
      will address: treatment options; symptom management; doctor/patient
      communication; and quality-of-life issues.
