AAMDSIF sponsors live education events throughout the year. This includes satellite symposia at annual medical association meetings, as well as smaller live regional events where community-based health professionals can hear from leading experts. The International Bone Marrow Failure Disease Scientific Symposium is our biennial professional meeting held near Washington, DC.

  • Hemoglobinuria paroxística nocturna (HPN)
  • Neoplasias mieloproliferativas
  • Síndromes mielodisplásicos de bajo riesgo
  • Síndromes mielodisplásicos de alto riesgo
  • Leucemia mieloide aguda
  • Trasplante de células madre hematopoyéticas

La audiencia primaria incluye hematólogos, oncólogos médicos, internistas, patólogos, enfermeras y profesionales de la salud que tratan a pacientes con enfermedades de la médula ósea.
El LVIII Congreso Nacional de Hematología organizado por la Agrupación Mexicana para el Estudio de la Hematología AC ( AMEH AC) se llevará a cabo del 26 al 29 de abril del 2017 en la hermosa Ciudad de León, Guanajuato, México.

Global experts in bone marrow failure disease come to our signature event, the two-day International Scientific Symposium, to present and compare data in high-level sessions that help improve treatments, advance new research theories and foster collaboration. These events typically consist of 40+ presentations by the world's top researchers and medical experts. The Foundation then produces summaries of the scientific presentations in layman's language for distribution to our patients and families so that they also benefit from the exchange of information among leaders in the field of bone marrow failure. All AAMDSIF symposia earn exceptionally high marks from the health professionals who attend.

In 2016, AAMDSIF will hold two regional bone marrow failure disease symposia for community-based professionals on September 14 at the Oregon Health and Sciences University in Portland, OR and November 4 at the Crowns Plaza Hotel, in Milwaukee, WI.

Regional Bone Marrow Failure Disease Symposia

Portland, Oregon - September 14, 2016
Cosponsored with Oregon Health and Science University

Clinicians caring for both children and adults are frequently faced with patients with low blood counts and the challenge of initial management and work-up. This symposium will provide participants with the most up-to-date review of scientific and clinical research related to the biology and management of pediatric and adult bone marrow failure diseases, including anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH). The presenters will focus on the latest advances in the diagnosis, genetic characteristics, pathology and treatment options for these diseases, including the importance of recognizing adult presentations of inherited marrow failure syndromes and recent discoveries in inherited bone marrow failure defects.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - November 4, 2016 
Cosponsored with Medical College of Wisconsin

Clinical Management of MDS/MPN: A Mountain of Evidence for Treatment Selection in MDS/MPN

CME-certified Satellite Lunch Symposium, preceding the 58th ASH Annual Meeting

Plan to attend the symposium that will provide an in-depth and up-to-date review of research related to the biology, prognosis, natural history, and therapeutic management of patients with MDS, MPN and MDS/MPN overlap.
