    Spring to Life Conference on Hematologic Malignancies™: Myeloproliferative Neoplasms is an accredited, educational program developed by New York Oncology Hematology (NYOH), in collaboration with the Center for Emergency Medical Education (CEME), the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and a panel of expert faculty from the academic, research, and community practice settings.

    With programming for both healthcare professionals and the community, the goal of this 1-day activity is to bring together cancer care providers and members of the community-including patients, survivors, and their family and caregivers-to gain an up-to-date understanding of blood cancers, including ongoing research, clinical management, and emerging therapies. The program also provides perspectives on the impact of cancer on the lives of patients and families.

    The 2017 conference will focus on myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). Specifically, clinician sessions will detail standards of care and emerging strategies for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), myelofibrosis (MF), and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML). The theme of the afternoon patient program is Care for the Caregiver.

    Healthcare professionals are welcome and encouraged to participate in the afternoon patient-centered sessions.
