Month-long initiative celebrates oncology professionals’ dedication to advancing research, treatment, and patient outcomes and profiles them in lead up to virtual Lymphoma, Leukemia & Myeloma Congress slated for October 19-23, 2021

MALVERN PA, (SEPTEMBER 8, 2021) – HMP Global, the leading healthcare event and education company, today announced details of the first-ever “Heroes in Healthcare” campaign in honor of Blood Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout September, the initiative recognizes oncology professionals who have dedicated their careers to advancing research and treatment of blood cancers including leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Nominations will be accepted throughout the month to celebrate individuals whose efforts are even more deserving of recognition given the increased challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The “Heroes in Healthcare” campaign is hosted in conjunction with the Lymphoma, Leukemia & Myeloma Congress, that will be delivered online via the company’s proprietary VRTX event platform October 19-23, 2021. Widely recognized as the leading educational forum for hematologists, medical oncologists, and physicians, the event’s five-day agenda focuses on hematologic research and clinical case studies and highlights cutting-edge treatment options to advance patient outcomes.

“In honor of Blood Cancer Awareness Month and with the Lymphoma, Leukemia & Myeloma Congress rapidly approaching, the timing is perfect to launch this campaign,” said Morton Coleman, MD, Weill Cornell Medicine and Chair of the Lymphoma, Leukemia & Myeloma Congress. "The commitment and dedication that healthcare professionals demonstrate in the complex treatment of blood cancers is unparalleled. This initiative allows us to express our gratitude for their unwavering efforts to improve patient care and outcomes.”
