Release Date: March 27, 2020
Expiration Date: March 27, 2021

Activity Overview

Community Practice Connections™: How Can Pathologic Assessment Be Optimized for Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia? focuses on optimizing pathologic assessment for patients with AML. Listen to oncology experts update pathologists with the latest information regarding diagnostic guidelines in AML, emerging targeted treatment strategies, and the application of novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in clinical practice. As understanding of the pathobiology of AML continues to evolve, the role of the pathologist in executing testing to guide the use of novel treatment strategies will continue to expand.
