Education sessions

Three Education Sessions on the management of LCH, HLH and rare histiocytoses will be offered during the Pre-meeting day, October 2, 2017. These sessions are open to all those who are interested. You do not have to be a Histiocyte Society member or attending the full Annual Meeting to register for an Education Session. Entrance to the Education Sessions is free to anyone registered for the full meeting and $50 for anyone who is interested in attending only the Education Sessions. All other Pre-meeting day sessions are open to Histiocyte Society members in good standing only.

These sessions will be focused on introductory information about the diagnosis and treatment of histiocytoses. Those new to the field or who seek a better basic understanding of the histiocytic disorders are encouraged to attend.

Advanced registration is required. On-site registration will not be available for the Education Sessions.
