The Bedrock of Personalized NF1 Care: Fundamental Principles of Managing NF1-Associated PNs and Other Tumors With Innovative Targeted Therapy
CME Morning Symposium (Oncology Topic)
This conversational exchange of ideas within a serial, case-based format will provide learners with an expert review of current recommendations and updated criteria for the diagnosis of NF1 and NF1-associated tumors, as well as insights on the pivotal shortcomings of conventional treatment approaches and the burgeoning emergence of novel targeted therapeutics, most notably MEK inhibitors, that are laying a new foundation for the management of NF1-related PNs and other tumors. The ‘Clinical Consults’ case discussion will seamlessly link to a mini-lecture on the evidence supporting the panel’s treatment choices in order to effectively guide the learner’s ability to translate current evidence into routine clinical practice.
Co-Chair and Presenter: Carlos G. Romo, MD; Johns Hopkins University
Co-Chair and Presenter: Laura Klesse, MD PhD; UT Southwestern Medical Center

Moving Towards a New Treatment Standard in Von Willebrand Disease
Non-CME Morning Symposium (Hematology Topic)
Von Willebrand disease is the most common inherited bleeding disorder, yet its diagnosis remains difficult owing to heterogeneity of signs and symptoms and laboratory testing that may not provide an accurate diagnosis. Therefore, a focused program on von Willebrand disease is desirable, especially for fellows and junior faculty.
