Our February 8, 2020 meeting will feature an update on the American Society for Hematology (ASH) 2019 conference, which was held in December in Orlando. Dr. Adam Waxman from Penn Medicine will give us a summary of the key research results from ASH. There was very encouraging news presented at this meeting, so come hear all about it.
