October 2017 - Early in the morning at 7am, before the Sunday sessions and just a few hours before the Lisbon marathon passed by, participants of the 19th John Goldman Conference on CML – all dressed up in green ‘John Goldman Fun Run’ T-Shirts – started to run along the beautiful Estoril promenade. Despite the early hour everyone had a big smile in their faces enjoying the sea view and the sunrise.
Again this year, all this was for a good cause: by purchasing a bright green ‘iCMLf John Goldman Fund’ running T-Shirt participants supported the training of young physicians from the emerging regions.
October 2017 - If you are a clinician treating CML patients in the emerging regions you can now apply for the 2018 iCMLf Clinical Preceptorship Program. With this program you have the unique opportunity to complete a 3-4 week preceptorship at a global CML center of excellence.
We are delighted to announce that in 2018 the iCMLf will again offer preceptorships for up to 20 hematologists from the emerging regions. Applications are welcome until December 15, 2017.
