Join the meeting

The ASH Meeting on Hematologic Malignancies features the top experts in the field, comprehensive clinical content, and the opportunity to interact with colleagues – all through a virtual experience. Participation in the 2020 virtual experience grants participants an opportunity to hear experts present cutting-edge scientific data, provide out-of-the-box treatment approaches, and answer challenging patient care questions during topic-based panel discussions.

The program content is structured as "How I Treat" presentations that showcase each speaker's evidence-based treatment approaches. Learn how new data can be translated into new strategies for diagnosis and treatment, find out what to do in cases where there is no data, and gain knowledge that can help you make an immediate impact on your practice.

Join ASH in a New Virtual Setting

Hear exciting updates in each of the core malignancies, including:

  • Leukemia
  • Lymphoma
  • Myelodysplastic syndromes

By transitioning the ASH Meeting on Hematologic Malignancies to a virtual experience that will combine both live and on-demand sessions, ASH will provide the following features for attendees:

  • Content categorized by malignancy and released between August 27 and September 10. This staggered release of content, categorized by malignancy, enables you to integrate these educational segments into your work schedule more effectively and watch at your own pace.
  • Live sessions discussing the impact of COVID-19 on hematologic malignancies will air in the evenings following the release of new content earlier in the day.
  • “How I Treat” presentation format is still a vital part of the meeting. Learn treatment strategies from the experts that you can use to improve your practice.
  • Registered participants will be able to watch content after the meeting conclude. Go back and revisit sessions when it’s convenient for you!
