Program Description

Advances & Controversies in Malignant Hematology & Oncology is a one-day comprehensive meeting that presents the latest data and cutting-edge updates in the rapidly evolving fields of malignant hematology and oncology. Advances & Controversies is unique in that it addresses questions and controversies emerging from the American Society of Hematology (ASH), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and other major disease-specific conferences. Faculty from Advances & Controversies were interviewed and asked to engage in a commentary style recording so that individuals who could not participate in the live conference can still benefit from these teachings/learnings. This program compiles those interviews in a viewer-friendly webcast presentation with a focus on solid tumors.
