American Society of Hematology - 59th Annual Meeting - Atlanta, Ga. - December 9 -12, 2017

Attend the world’s most comprehensive hematology event of the year, the 59th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition, in vibrant, fresh, and creative Atlanta. The meeting will provide an invaluable educational experience and the opportunity to review thousands of scientific abstracts highlighting updates in the hottest topics in hematology. Network with top minds in the field and a global community of more than 25,000 hematology professionals from every subspecialty.

Just like our meeting, Atlanta has something for everyone, and there’s no time like the present to visit the South's largest city. In the middle of an urban resurgence, Atlanta was named one of The New York Times’ 52 places to visit in 2014. Around every corner is a new attraction, restaurant, or shopping opportunity. If you haven't visited in a few years, you haven't really seen Atlanta.
