CHC-WEST Regional Hematology Meeting (Calgary)
For the past 5 years CARE has run the annual Canadian Hematology Conference in Toronto, ON. In order to extend its reach and impact, the CARE Faculty is hosting a satellite meeting in Calgary, Alberta. This content-rich conference will provide a platform to bring together academic, community, and allied health care professionals in the region of Western Canada. The conference will showcase news and developments in a number of hematological malignancies, including (but not limited to) lymphoma, leukemia, and plasma cell dyscrasias and aims to provide an environment where cutting edge content, relevant cases, and treatment strategies can be discussed with experts in hematology.
