ASH 2023

December 10, 2023

From 08th to 12th December 2023, Catherine, Jan and Samantha attended the 65th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in San Diego (USA).

Before leaving, we had the chance to meet virtually with our members and supporters who couldn’t attend the congress in person.

On Friday 08th December, Jan Geissler (interim ALAN Chair) and Samantha (ALAN Network Director) gave an update to ALAN Members and Supporters on the  2023 plans and on planned 2024 activities.  We are happy to share the presentation (if not already received) – just let us know by email at

We met with our colleagues from other advocacy organizations at the Pfizer ASH Patient Advocacy breakfast and working session and were excited to present data from the carer global leukemia experience survey and share our perspective. 

On the sunday 10th December, we presented our poster “Understanding Relapsed/Refractory Acute Leukemia Patients Treatment Preferences“.

The congress was also the opportunity to meet with some of our members and sponsors but also our advocacy colleagues.

And this is what it feels like on a typical #ASH23 evening after 13.49km and 18.012 steps at the San Diego Conference Center, chasing between meetings and sessions all day.

Until we meet again, the ALAN team wishes you a wonderful holiday season !
