The Binaytara Foundation is facilitating three conferences with varying focuses at the beginning of the year. These meetings include BTF’s ASH Annual Meeting Review in Portland, OR on January 6-7; Highlights from SABCS on January 21 in Seattle, WA; and the Multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Symposium on February 3-4 in San Diego, CA.

ASH Annual Meeting Review

At this meeting, faculty will present important information, findings, and impacts on care from the ASH 22 conference. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from hematology experts and participate in discussions relevant to their work and patients.


Dr. Sri Tantravahi is the conference chair and will be joined by faculty from the Mayo Clinic, University of Washington, Fred Hutch, and Oregon Health & Science University, among others. The meeting will feature a tumor board-style case-based discussion moderated by Dr. Tantravahi and Dr. Aaron Goodman. Dr. Natasha Goodwin of Providence Healthcare, Dr. Eva Medvedova of Oregon Health & Science University, and Dr. Curtis Lachowiez of Oregon Health & Science University will be panelists.

Highlights from SABCS

Dr. Fengting Yan and Dr. Janice Kim are leading this conference as the co-chairs and hope to offer key advances, presentations, and impacts from the SABCS meeting in Texas. Some doctors may have been unable to attend, and Dr. Yan wants to provide access to the information and continue the conversation.

“We are bringing all the local experts together to focus on the most relevant updates for the audience and making it interactive with case discussions.”
