Now in its 24th year, the annual International Congress on Hematologic Malignancies®: Focus on Leukemias, Lymphomas, and Myeloma provides practitioners who manage hematologic malignancies with the practical tools to translate emerging data into the best therapy for their patients, to personalize care according to patient and tumor characteristics, and to apply novel treatment strategies to improve patient outcomes.
We are pleased to feature expanded coverage on chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells and immunotherapy in 2020. First, a full afternoon session on Thursday, February 27, 2020, will be dedicated to addressing advances in CAR T-cell therapy for hematologic malignancies, as well as strategies to overcome treatment resistance. Next, sessions on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will focus on methods to apply state-of-the-art treatment strategies in your clinical practice setting. This engaging and highly interactive meeting will provide ample opportunity for attendees to interact with internationally renowned experts in the management of leukemias, lymphomas, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), and benign hematologic malignancies. Our faculty will distill practice-changing evidence and recommend how to put this information into clinical context, so that you may apply it to real-world patient-care scenarios. The discussion will also focus on how to proactively mitigate and manage treatment-related toxicities associated with new cellular therapies.
Interspersed throughout the meeting are sessions of Medical Crossfire®, a nationally recognized healthcare communication platform for debate, discussion, and peer exchange. These sessions will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore some of the most challenging clinical situations in the management of hematologic malignancies—treatment scenarios with multiple potential approaches.
This dynamic Congress will inspire participants to reflect on and share the new information they have learned, and to apply these new practices in the clinical setting, with the ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes.
