   Overview and Purpose
   This symposium is designed to update medical oncologists/hematologists
   and other health care professionals on potentially practice-changing
   data on the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma presented at
   recent international hematology/oncology meetings. Participants will
   have the opportunity to learn about these advances through
   presentations by national and regional experts, interactive case
   discussions, and question-and-answer opportunities, with the overall
   goal of integrating these advances into clinical practice as well as
   enhancing awareness of novel agents in development. Furthermore, the
   most important data will be presented in the form of a poster session,
   for which ample time will be allocated for viewing. These features
   will reinforce the key data and allow participants to see and hear the
   information in multiple formats. This program will thus provide an
   invaluable and timely opportunity for practicing
   oncologists/hematologists to increase their knowledge base and improve
   their performance in managing their patients. These meetings will also
   foster networking opportunities for community practitioners.

   New for 2011: Poster session featuring top abstracts from ASH 2010!
   Target Audience This educational activity is directed toward medical,
   surgical, and radiation oncologists interested in the treatment of

   nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other
