Do not miss the first ever graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) Clinical OlympicsSM symposium preceding the ASH 2022! All prospective “Olympians” will join 1 of 3 country teams to compete in a series of clinical events by answering challenge questions (via provided iPads) on the management of GVHD in patients who have undergone allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). Individual learners earn points for their team by responding correctly to challenges in each event, after which the big screens will display the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medal winners. In the closing ceremonies of the Clinical OlympicsSM, the all-around winners from all 3 events will be announced, as well as the leaderboard for the top 15 individual performers. Join us for the expert-driven scientific exchange, but also for some friendly competition and fun!
