JOIN US IN-PERSON OR VIRTUALLY!
 
Our goal is to join community-based providers and academic oncologists to improve the care and outcomes of patients with hematologic malignancies. To reach this goal, this activity will address early treatment options and medical advances that can be implemented to reduce cancer-related deaths. Our overarching goal is to keep all healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with hematologic malignancies to stay abreast of the latest scientific updates, innovative ideas, and timeliest issues related to their care. This conference will provide the target audience with information that can help improve patient management and care strategies. Participants will discuss with content experts rapidly evolving developments, discover new treatments for patients, and improve overall practice paradigms. We will educate and empower community-based oncologists on best practices for treating hematologic cancers and inform them of the indicators for when to refer a patient for tertiary level care.
