ASH-a-Palooza

ASH-a-Palooza has gone virtual! The 62nd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition – originally to be held in San Diego, California – will be presented as an all-virtual event, given the continuing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. ASH-a-Palooza will continue to kick-off the meeting, spreading the much-anticipated content over two days, December 3rd and 4th, 2020.

ASH-a-Palooza will be held Thursday, December 3rd and Friday, December 4th, 2020 from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific time. Many of the festivities from the in-person event have been reformatted to fit a virtual platform. Other trainee activities have been re-imagined and included in the ASH-a-Palooza schedule for an all-encompassing trainee experience.

The different type of sessions are defined below followed by a listing of all the sessions. Please use the menu below to jump to sessions of interest.

There is one ASH Talk each day of ASH-a-Palooza. ASH Talks remain the premier presentation of the event. Dynamic, engaging, topical, relevant subjects will be presented by leaders in hematology. Each ASH Talk recording will be played at the prescribed time followed by a live Q&A hosted by the presenters. Scroll down to make sure you note the date and time of these special presentations.

The micro-learning sessions, Blood Drops, are back this year covering classic topics like ASH award opportunities, career pathways, and wellness. And new topics; Health Disparities and Finding your Career. Blood Drops will be presented with one, two, or three speaker panels. The pre-recorded blood drop presentation(s) will play at the prescribed time, followed by a live Q&A session. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers during each session. The Blood Drops will be presented twice, as usual. Make sure you check out the schedule!

Trainees will have the opportunity to meet with leaders in the field, now in two different formats! The Career Development Lunch session has been re-imagined into Blood Buddy Forums. Faculty mentors will host various virtual rooms where trainees will be encouraged to ask questions and for advice. Trainees can also choose a one-on-one Blood Buddy ten-minute mentoring session with a faculty member. The latter half of each day is reserved for mentorship so make sure to take advantage of the opportunity to meet prestigious ASH members! Stay tuned for more information about how to book a time for a Blood Buddy session or access a Blood Buddy Forum.

Blood Buddies

Blood Buddy Forums

The simultaneous didactic sessions that are usually held over lunch on Sunday and Monday of the meeting will now be offered on Friday, December 4th as a part of ASH-a-Palooza. Prerecorded presentations will be presented at the prescribed times, followed by a live Q&A hosted by the panel speakers.

This year, the ASH Special Symposium on Quality will take place during ASH-a-Palooza and will feature a presentation on physician burnout by Dr. Shelly Dev of Sunnybrook Hospital. The 2020 Trainee Competition will follow her presentation and will feature four hematology trainees presenting their innovative responses to the question: “Burnout is a serious problem affecting trainees and seasoned clinicians in hematology. What can we do about it?” Register for the annual meeting today to attend the session and cast your vote for the best trainee presentation.

ASH is committed to supporting trainees in their next career opportunity. Career advice as a theme has been weaved through out each component of ASH-a-Palooza. The Blood Drop session, Finding Your Career highlights alternate career pathways introducing the road less traveled. The Blood Drops focusing on specific disease areas will give you a peek into the day in the life of a hematologist specializing in sickle cell disease or stem cell transplant.

We encourage all ASH-a-Palooza attendees to visit the ASH Job Center to view currently job opportunities.

For any questions about ASH-a-Palooza, please contact training@hematology.org.
