We are really excited to let you know about the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting of the NZ Branch of HSANZ which will be held in Auckland at Spencer on Byron, from 30 March to 1 April, 2019.
This meeting is the only regular meeting of the New Zealand haematology community and is attended by a high proportion of haematologists, trainees, and specialist nurses involved in the care of patients with blood diseases in this country. The meeting provides an excellent opportunity for those involved to hear high calibre international and local speakers, as well as time to network with colleagues and pharmaceutical industry representatives from around the country.
We are very excited to have several distinguished speakers confirmed for 2019.
