19th Annual International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium April 29-30, 2022
Scientific innovation in the detection and treatment of lymphoma is rapidly advancing, and practicing physicians cannot keep abreast of the latest developments in the area. By educating healthcare providers on the current publications and lymphoma data, patients will receive the best and most relevant treatment of their disease
The symposium has been designed for medical hematologists/oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, surgical oncologists, fellows-in-training, oncology nurses, and allied health professionals committed to the diagnosis and treatment of lymphoma.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Compare and contrast the latest approaches to the treatment of patients with indolent and aggressive forms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma;
- Evaluate current and emerging approaches to the treatment of patients with Hodgkin lymphoma;
- Assess the latest clinical trial data of current and emerging CAR T-cells and cellular therapy for patients with hematologic malignancies, including important safety and efficacy data;
- Discuss patient and disease-related factors that impact the selection and sequencing of therapy for patients with CLL;
- Develop strategies to utilize the entire multidisciplinary team during the continuum of care of patients with lymphoma.
