Free EHA congress registrations for representatives of haematology patient organizations: Deadline 29 April 2017!
This year EHA Congress will be held on the 22-25 June 2017 in Madrid, Spain. Thanks to very patient-centric thinking, EHA continues to work closely with the patient community and is once again offering a “Patient Advocacy Track” within the scientific program.
EHA FELLOWSHIP -- APPLY NOW, UNTIL 29 APRIL!
Once again in 2017, EHA will provide 50 Fellowships for their EHA congress which will be held during the 22-25 June 2017 in Madrid. The Fellowship provides free access to the full congress, but also includes a compulsory "capacity building programme" to educate all attending advocates and further their development and knowledge about haematology and science.
In collaboration with EHA and the European Reference Network EuroBloodNet, we're taking the next level this year and will provide a "EHA Capacity Building Meeting" for all Fellows on 22 June, from 14:00 - 17:00.
In this meeting, EHA Fellows will hear about EuroBloodNet, the ePAGs, about interpreting scientific data, and about how to get the best out of a scientific conference EHA (for all disease areas). This will then be followed with a summary of the most important data presented at EHA, specifically for Fellows in MDS, Myeloma, Acute Leukemias, Lymphomas & CLL, MDS and CML. The capacity building meeting on 22 June will be mandatory for all EHA Fellows. Priority will be given to advocates who have attended last year's capacity building event and/or are engaged in European hematology patient networks.
Please encourage your most important science-interested advocates to apply for an EHA Fellowship to attend EHA and speak to your umbrella group if they may be able to support EHA Fellows with travel costs.
