Welcome to Conference Web Central

Registration is open for HOPA’s 10th Annual Conference, which will be held March 26–29, 2014, in New Orleans. HOPA’s Annual Conference provides hematology/oncology pharmacists at all levels of experience with the education and research information they need to deliver the highest quality care to their patients. Conference attendees will discuss current controversies relating to the screening and treatment of patients with solid tumors and hematologic malignancies, learn about new and emerging therapies for hematology and oncology patients, and review recent developments in the medical literature regarding hematology/oncology medications.

Thank you to the HOPA Annual Conference Program Committee for working collaboratively with a number of committees to design a meeting that helps support the work of hematology/oncology pharmacy.

See you in New Orleans in March.
