Dear Colleague,

I am inviting you to the "School of Hematology on Benign Hematological Disorders" organized jointly by the International Society of Hematology (ISH) 

and Turkish Society of Hematology (TSH) in Antalya, Turkey on 22-24 December 2017.

The School is intended to address the educational needs of young hematologists and hematology fellows, 

both in adult and pediatric hematology

Attached please find the Scientific Program.

As the ISH - European and African Division (EAD),  we are aiming to attract participants from countries in the region, 

in particular Eastern and Central Europe, Africa and Middle East

The School has a capacity of 50 participants and all will be sponsored by the Turkish Society of Hematology (TSH)  and pharmaceutical industry. 

As the faculty and participants will be staying at the same hotel where the School will be held, 

it will allow the participants to discuss matters and share ideas of interest, not limited to the course hours. 

We will appreciate if you can come to this important ISH-EAD educational event.
