14th International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium: Diagnosis and Management of Lymphoma

Chicago, IL US
May 5, 2017 to May 6, 2017
The International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium (IUCLS) is an annual conference dedicated solely to the science and clinical care of lymphoma. It has been organized to honor the achievements of Dr. John Ultmann, a pioneer in the treatment of lymphoma, who devoted his life to the understanding of this disease. He was particularly known for his work on the staging of Hodgkin lymphoma and the utility of staging as a guide for treatment.
We are fortunate to have a multitude of the world’s experts in lymphoma speak each year at the conference. The audience is comprised of regional practicing oncologists, advanced nurse practitioners and physician assistants, residents, fellows, and the Chicago academic community that includes five academic centers.
This is a certified continuing medical education (CME) activity that focuses on the biologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The format of the meeting includes a combination of expert presentations, interactive case discussions, poster/abstract presentations, and an opportunity for question-and-answer debates. The IUCLS is a two-day meeting held Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and early afternoon at the W Chicago City Center. Friday afternoon concentrates on the scientific and translational aspects of lymphoma, while Saturday has a clinical focus.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed for practicing oncologists, advanced nurse practitioners and physician assistants, residents, fellows, and the other health professionals interested in the treatment and diagnosis of lymphoma.
