About the symposium

The 21st Annual Hematology and Breast Cancer Update is a multiple-day course designed for hematologists and oncologists in clinical practice. Our faculty will review and provide updates on a wide range of current topics in hematology and breast cancer therapy. Expert analysis and interpretation of the latest findings from the 2019 American Society of Hematology and the 2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Meetings will provide a bridge between research and practice.

Learning objectives

The course objectives are to increase participant's knowledge of most current management and research in treatment of hematologic diseases and breast cancer.

At the conclusion of the activity, participants will be able to:

  • Integrate the newer therapies into their treatment course.
  • Select the best agent for initial treatment of CML as well as those with sub-optimal responses.
  • Decide how long to treat patients with venous thrombosis.
  • Describe developments in new agents for myeloproliferative syndromes and new findings from the 2019 American Society of Hematology Meeting and the 2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Meetings.
  • Select the best agent for initial treatment of CML as well as those with sub-optimal responses.
