BMT Tandem Meetings Return to Honolulu Feb. 17-21

On Feb. 18, Dr. Stella Davies, chair of the Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) (shown), and Dr. John Barrett, president of the American Society for Blood & Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) were interviewed in separate segments at the Hawai`i News Now studios with Howard Dicus of Sunrise.

It’s a great year for major medical conferences at the Hawai`i Convention Center.  This month, the BMT Tandem Meetings are returning to the Hawai`i Convention Center from Feb. 17-21 with 2,400 attendees.  That’s 400 more than initially forecast.

Participants from 44 countries will benefit from a full scientific program that addresses timely issues in hematopoietic cell transplantation.  New this year will be the event’s first-ever Clinical Practice Forum on Feb. 19, which includes sessions designed to transcend various roles and disciplines for allied health professionals.

The meetings are a combined annual effort of the Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) and the American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT).
