WORDS OF WELCOME
9th Annual Canadian Conference on Lymphoproliferative Disorders (CCOLD)
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alberta – March 23-26, 2017
On behalf of the planning committee, I have the pleasure of inviting you to the 9th Annual Canadian Conference on Lymphoproliferative Disorders (CCOLD).
CCOLD provides a unique opportunity for attendees to interact with international experts in the field of hematologic malignancies. The scope of this meeting will highlight both recent research findings elucidating the pathophysiology of these diverse diseases, as well as changes in therapeutic advances that have had a large impact in the management of our patients. As in previous meetings the format will be didactic presentations as well as case based panel discussions. There will be opportunity for audience participation via keypad polling devices with the entire faculty featured during the panel discussions.
Internationally known researchers in Lymphoproliferative Disorders will provide keynote lectures and their perspectives on optimal management.
We will continue to support the “Young Investigators Research Awards Program” which has been very successful in providing educational and research support to trainees interested in Lymphoproliferative Disorders. Posters outlining their research will be focused at a special reception Saturday afternoon.
The organizing committee for the Allied Health Care Session is in the process of setting up a lively agenda for Friday morning/afternoon.
This event has been planned and implemented in accordance as an Accredited Group Learning activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of certification program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. This program will be reviewed by the UBC Division of Continuing Professional Development and Knowledge Translation.
CCOLD will be held at Lake Louise which is one of the most scenic alpine destinations. This provides the ideal setting to participate in this premier educational event and to network with your colleagues.
