23rd Annual International Congress on Hematologic Malignancies 2019: Focus on Leukemias, Lymphomas and Myeloma


The annual International Congress on Hematologic Malignancies is dedicated to providing clinicians access to emerging data in treating hematologic malignancies. Providing practical tools to optimize therapy and personalize care.

Our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Maher Albitar will be presenting Beyond Genomics: Integrating Molecular Medicine in Our Practice on Friday March 1st, 8:40am.

Few words about the Congress

Now in its 23rd year, the annual International Congress on Hematologic Malignancies®: Focus on Leukemias, Lymphomas, and Myeloma provides practitioners who manage hematologic malignancies the practical tools to translate emerging data into the best therapy for patients with these tumors, personalize care based upon patient and tumor characteristics, and apply novel management strategies to their practices to improve outcomes for their patients.

Back by popular demand! This 3.5-day meeting will be held from Thursday through mid-afternoon Sunday. As always, agenda topics will focus on methods to apply state-of-the-art strategies to your clinical practice settings. This engaging and highly interactive meeting will provide ample opportunity to interact with internationally renowned experts in the management of leukemias, lymphomas, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes, myeloproliferative neoplasms, and benign hematologic malignancies. Our faculty will distill practice-changing evidence and recommend methods to place this information in its proper clinical context so it can be applied to the real-world care scenarios you encounter. In doing so, a focus will be placed on how to proactively mitigate and manage treatment-related toxicities associated with new treatment strategies.

The well-known and highly interactive Medical Crossfire® discussion panels interspersed throughout the meeting will allow attendees to explore some of the most challenging clinical situations in the management of hematologic malignancies, many of which have multiple potential approaches to care.

This dynamic Congress will challenge participants to apply new information they have learned, reflect on new practices they can bring back to their clinics to share with their peers, and ultimately improve patient outcomes in their practice settings.
