Hematology/Oncology State Societies

ASH works in close concert with state hematology/oncology societies to meet the needs of practicing hematologists. These partnerships offer state societies several collaboration opportunities, including on the Meeting on Hematologic Malignancies and Highlights of ASH. State societies are also very involved in state Medicare reimbursement through the annual ASH Career Advisory Committees (CAC) Meeting.
