Treatment of hematologic malignancies is increasingly complex. Issues relating to pathology, transplantation, and various new therapies require oncologists and hematologists to stay abreast of breakthrough advances. In addition, targeted therapies and oral treatments bring the latest benefits to patients. This congress focuses on the new approaches that have been incorporated into patient management, including the use of drugs, biologics, and diagnostics.

This year's congress will kick off with Registration, Exhibits, and Refreshments on Friday, September 30th at 4:30 PM followed by educational sessions starting at 6:00 PM. The congress will end at 5:00 PM on Saturday, October 1st.
