  • 2. Greetings from the Program Co-Chairs Greetings, We are pleased to invite you to the 2012 ASH State-of-the-Art Symposium. As the only national organization focused on the unique needs of hematologists, ASH is committed to providing educational experiences tailored to your requirements. This clinically focused, CME-accredited symposium is designed to offer the same high- caliber educational content for which the ASH annual meeting is known. In addition, the limited attendance for this meeting allows for increased interaction and networking opportunities. We encourage you to take advantage of the various program breaks as well as the “Lunch with the Experts.” This year’s program will focus on the newest treatment options for hematologic malignancies with a special focus on thrombosis. Topics will include thrombocytopenia, myelodysplastic syndromes, and lymphoma. The speakers are experts in the field and are carefully selected by ASH for their breadth of knowledge in hematology. We look forward to hearing your feedback on the program, specifically related to improving your practice strategies and other ways ASH’s continuing education activities can help meet your educational needs. Thank you for your interest in the 2012 ASH State-of-the-Art Symposium and we hope to see you this fall! Sincerely yours, Nancy L. Bartlett, MD Thomas L. Ortel, MD, PhD 2012 ASH State-of-the-Art Symposium 2012 ASH State-of-the-Art Symposium Program Co-Chair Program Co-ChairPartnerSocieties:
