ASH will be hosting a series of informative webinars during 2011 and 2012. These sessions have been designed to spotlight universal issues facing practicing hematologists and will address the most up-to-date techniques in patient care. Additionally, the sessions will feature presentations from experts in the field and an interactive question-and-answer period. The series is available to ASH members and nonmembers, and registration is free.
Registration is now open for the first webinar, Antiphospholid Antibody Syndrome (APS), which will be held on September 6 at 8:00 p.m. and moderated by Wendy Lim, MD, of McMaster
University. APS is a hypercoagulable condition related to venous and arterial thrombosis. This webinar will concentrate on laboratory testing for antiphospholid antibodies, anticoagulant management, and the management of women with APS who are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. In addition to Dr. Lim, there are three other guest speakers including Mark Crowther, MD, Thomas Ortel, MD, PhD, and Shannon Bates, MD.
