Program Description: 

As the medical field evolves at an incredible pace, educational conferences such as ours are key to keeping physicians who are no longer in training programs up to date on the latest development and technologies available for patient care. This conference offers an opportunity to get significant updates on the management of hematological malignancies. Hematological malignancies are a complex and rapidly evolving field. The speakers will review topics such as the role of transplantation in multiple myeloma, pain & opioid management, improving standard therapy for AML, transfusion in heme malignancies and more. Educational conferences such as these are vital for clinicians to stay up-to-date on all advances in hematological disease.
