Leukaemia and Blood Cancer (LBC) NZ – Blood Cancer Forum

Leukaemia and Blood Cancer (LBC) NZ is holding a conference/forum in Christchurch, at Rydges Latimar Hotel, starting Friday evening, 3 September, with talks, drinks, and dinner. Then all day Saturday 4 September is the main part of the conference, with talks covering all the main areas of leukaemia and blood cancer, including CLL. It is planned to have a lunchtime meeting for CLLANZ attendees over lunch on the Saturday. Go on to the LBC website to check for the programme, and registration details here https://www.leukaemia.org.nz/forum/ .
They are expecting about 150 registrants, and there are very good speakers, including Professor Peter Browett, and Dr Rob Weinkove, who both spoke at last October’s CLLANZ/LBC seminar on CLL, held in Auckland and via Zoom to the rest of the country. Could those Friends of CLLANZ who live in or around Christchurch make email or text contact with me if they intend going to this forum.

CLLAN Horizons Conference

5 -7 November

CLLAN, the group coordinating CLL patient support groups globally, is having their annual conference (on line this year) on 5 – 7 November. I went to their 2019 conference in Edinburgh, and it was excellent. I recommend that you check out their website – the meeting is called “CLL Horizons” – info@clladvocates.net, and consider attending. The meeting is all about CLL, and addressed by world leaders on the disease. https://www.clladvocates.net/program/cll-horizons/
