Overview

Internationally known guest speakers along with UKY Hematology faculty and a representative from the private practice groups will provide focused reviews on relevant topics in Hematology and Immunotherapy. These topics will relate to hematologic malignancies and benign hematology as well as immunotherapy and their content will be based on most recent data presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Society in December 2018 (ASH). ASH is the most important meeting for Hematologists, and due to the size of the meeting along with associated costs to participate, it is not possible for all hematologists to participate nor to attend all relevant lessons. A concise overview will provide update to both hematologists within and outside of UKY, within and outside of Kentucky based on their participation, and for our trainees and staff.
