8th Annual Spring to Life: Conference on Leukemias 2021

May 14, 2021 to May 15, 2021
The focus of the 2021 Spring to Life Conference is Leukemias. New York Oncology Hematology (NYOH) has identified an ongoing unmet need for medical education in the area of hematologic malignancies. To meet this need, NYOH, in collaboration with The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, myMedEd, Inc., the American Cancer Society, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and a panel of expert faculty from the academic, research, and community practice settings, developed an accredited, multi-supported, 2-day educational conference. With an expanded agenda the conference is offering 8.5-hrs of accredited continuing medical education. This is the eighth of these annual conferences that include programming for cancer clinicians.

Target Audience

The target audience for this conference is the medical oncologist, hematologists, pathologists, oncology nurses, advanced practice providers, family and primary care practitioner, allied health professional, and any other individuals with an interest in the care of patients with leukemias.
