ASH 2021

Welcome to the ASH 2021

The 63rd Annual Meeting and Exposition of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) was a hybrid event this year. It took place in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta GA. But due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it was possible to attend the complete event virtually. The meeting took place December 11-14, and offered participant the ability to educate, co-operate and network each other.

Purpose of ASH meetings

The mission of the ASH is to further the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders affecting the blood, bone marrow, and the immunologic, hemostatic, and vascular systems, by promoting research, clinical care, education, training and advocacy in hematology. In accordance with this mission, the primary purpose of scientific meetings organized by ASH, including the Society’s annual meeting, is to facilitate the exchange of scientific information and clinical results related to the field of hematology. Another important goal of ASH-organized meetings is to assist physicians and scientists in developing and maintaining academic collaborations that will generate new knowledge, ultimately benefiting patients.


CongressUpdate Hematology provides you with a selection of the most important highlights of the ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition by means of summaries of lectures, key slides and podcasts with opinions of top clinicians that support your daily management of hematologic patients.
