The European Hematology Association's 20th Annual Congress was June 11 - 14, 2015 in Vienna. The Congress provided a forum for presenting original unpublished data and sharing ideas for hematological innovation as well as disseminating evidence-based knowledge of primary clinical relevance. Congress attendees included hematologists and affiliated professionals.
Those attending this year's EHA Congress were able to:
- Enhance their knowledge of evidence-based approaches on diagnosis and treatment for hematologic diseases.
- Access the latest results on clinical and translational research in hematologic disorders.
- Be updated on emerging innovative techniques, diagnostic tools and risk-assessment strategies in hematology and its subspecialties.
- Communicate, collaborate and network with representatives of a large international audience – medical professionals, national hematology societies, patient groups, medical industry and the media.

THE TYK2 PATHWAY AS A NOVEL THERAPEUTIC INTERVENTION SITE IN AGGRESSIVE T-CELL LYMPHOMA
A well done symposium by prIME Oncology in Relapsed Refractory Multiple Myeloma: Embracing the Person in Personalized Care - incorporating patient Yelak Beru as one of the speakers, sharing his perspective along every step of the clinical presentation. It raised the bar on patient advocacy on an International level. One of Yelak's takeaways for the physicians, "educate us patients through social media. We appreciate having information channeled to us." Yelak may have convinced Dr. Palumbo to start tweeting.
