5th Annual Spring To Life Conference on Hematologic Malignancies

May 19, 2018

Spring to Life Conference on Hematologic MalignanciesTM: Conference on Indolent Lymphoid Malignancies is an accredited, educational program developed by New York Oncology Hematology (NYOH), in collaboration with the Center for Emergency Medical Education (CEME), the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and a panel of expert faculty from the academic, research, and community practice settings.

With programming for both healthcare professionals and the community, the goal of this 1-day activity is to bring together cancer care providers and members of the community, including patients, survivors, their family, and caregivers, to gain an up-to-date understanding of blood cancers, including ongoing

research, clinical management, and emerging therapies. The program also provides perspectives on the impact of cancer on the lives of patients and families. The 2018 conference will focus on indolent lymphoid malignancies. Specifically, clinician sessions will detail standards of care and current evidence-based and emerging therapeutics, including efficacy, safety, and tolerability, in order to inform a clinical audience on the more common indolent lymphomas and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The theme of the afternoon patient program is Finding Hope in Times of Transition.

Healthcare professionals are welcome and encouraged to participate in the afternoon patient-centered sessions.  You will receive additional information about this program after registering for the conference.
