The allied health professional category is for individuals without a doctoral degree who provide direct patient care.

The following individuals are eligible to register as allied health professionals: nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physician assistants, clinical nurse specialists, and pharmacists without a PharmD.

  • The registrant's position,
  • The percentage of activity and time devoted to the direct care and treatment of patients, and
  • A copy of a state license with expiration date thru the end of the conference.

Verification confirming the registrant professional status is required and should be uploaded (in PDF format) prior to arrival on site. To be officially registered for the meeting, ASH must confirm the registrant’s status. Individuals who do not provide verification will be charged the non-member registration rate.

Non-Profit Patient Advocacy Organization Registration Program

ASH recognizes the critical role non-profit patient advocacy organizations play in helping people with hematologic disorders, their caregivers, and providing access to accurate, reliable, and timely information about their disease treatment options. ASH seeks to offer non-profit patient advocacy organizations the tools, resources, and opportunities they need to provide the most effective support for patients and their caregivers.

The Non-Profit Patient Advocacy Organization Registration program is designed to expand access to the content delivered at the ASH annual meeting. It is reserved exclusively for non-profit patient advocacy organizations; individuals interested in registering under this category must work or volunteer for national or international non-for-profit patient advocacy organizations that:

  • Demonstrate a charitable mission related to hematology
  • Engage in patient advocacy activities and/or provide programs, services, information, and/or support for people affected by a hematologic disorder. In general, the organization’s website should contain information on one or more of the following:
    • Patient education
    • Information regarding clinical trials and research,
    • Information on legislative activity, funding, and advocacy,
    • Information on meetings and other disease-centered activities,
    • Information regarding new drugs and treatment programs, and
    • Links to other sites with pertinent information, and other information that ASH feels will be useful for patients.
  • Do not offer continuing medical education (CME) or scientific programs for medical or research professionals

This program is not intended for medical or scientific research professionals, academic institutions, other professional societies, research or charitable foundations, industry corporations, or governmental entities.

The application will begin in July since non-member registration will be open in August. The application will require the completion of an online form that outlines the qualifying credentials to be considered, along with a CV resume or bio sketch, and a signed letter from the organization on its letterhead that outlines 1) the organization is a non-profit patient advocacy organization, 2) the applicant’s role with the organization, and 3) that the applicant is the sole representative that will be applying.

At the beginning of each month, ASH staff will review the applications received to date, select meritorious recipients, and inform the approved applicant how to proceed with registering.

Only one recipient per each non-profit patient advocacy organization will be approved.

Spouse/Guest

Spouses and guests are welcome to register for the ASH annual meeting. They will receive a badge that allows access to the exhibit hall, including daily coffee breaks and boxed lunches on Sunday and Monday, the Saturday evening welcome reception, and Sunday and Monday poster hall receptions.
