European Hematology Association (EHA) meeting in Stockholm welcomes CSC Kosovo for the first time.

Members of the CSC Kosovo team attended the 23rd Congress of EHA. This conference offered a program covering every sub-specialty in hematology, as well as network opportunities with experts from all over the globe. The educational and scientific program highlighted state-of-the-art clinical practice, the latest findings in hematology research and many more interesting sessions. The Congress also provided satellite programs, updates-in-Hematology and an exhibition organized by pharmaceutical companies. The ‘patient advocacy hub’ was an excellent area to meet other patient advocates and share experiences. We particularly enjoyed our discussion with Mira Armour, co-founder of Mijelom CRO, a support group for patients suffering from Myeloma in Croatia.
