Estimated Time
1.00 hour

Release Date
Sep 28, 2023

Expiration Date
Sep 27, 2024

New and emerging advancements in the treatment of follicular lymphoma (FL) are on the horizon. Are you and your clinical teams up for the challenge of testing your skill in applying the latest clinical evidence to these groundbreaking therapies? This independent satellite symposium is an engaging learning experience, where you'll have the chance to compete against your colleagues in complex clinical cases of follicular lymphoma. Tune into our panel of experts as they discuss:

  • Prognostic tools in evaluating and managing patients with FL, empowering you to make well-informed decisions about prognosis to tailor treatment plans accordingly
  • The latest clinical evidence surrounding new and emerging therapies, differentiated by mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety profiles, to optimize treatment outcomes
  • Treatment selection for patients with relapsed/refractory FL, considering crucial factors such as prior therapy history, disease characteristics, and individual patient factors

This independent satellite symposium is derived from the Society of Hematologic Oncology 2023 Annual Meeting, originally held on September 8, 2023.
