CML Advocacy: Learn. Share. Grow. 

4 - 6 May 2018, Warsaw, Poland

 

During the annual CML Horizons Conference on 4 to 6, May 2018 the CML Advocates Network welcomed 117 attendees (among them 41 newcomers) supporting patients and families affected by Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) to Warsaw, Poland. Delegates from around the world (Europe, North America, Asia, Africa, Middle East and Latin America) came to Warsaw to learn from experts both medical and patient advocates on the latest information about CML, share best  practices in patient advocacy in order to grow their organisations in their own countries and give back to their own communities. This year we had introduced the "Poster Presentation Session" that gave our members the opportunity to interact with other CML Patient Organisations and showcase their organisation on a worldwide platform and share their activities and/or best practices.  

Our member Amal Hrim gave a heartbreaking moving tribute to our dearly beloved Ferdinand Mwangura and the community and members of the Africa & Middle East region have voted for Bahija Gouimi to act as temporary region steering committee until next elections.

The conference has over the years shown the immense energy and power of the worldwide CML Community: inspirational poster presentations, interactive regional workshop and outstanding and relevant presentations by CML medical and advocate specialists. The meeting doesn't simply give us just medical insight and advocacy expertise, but considerably more - we feel that throughout the years, the group has built up an extraordinary community crossing oceans and borders to improve the life of patients and empower new and existing patient groups and has turned into a remarkable universal family.

CML Horizons is a wholly community-run and multi-sponsored conference, which has evolved from the "New Horizons" conferences 2002-2011. The annual conference is run by the CML Advocates Network, hosted by the non-profit, Swiss-based and patient-driven "Leukemia Patient Advocates Foundation".

During the annual CML Horizons Conference on 26 to 28 May 2017 the CML Advocates Network welcomed 100 delegates (among them 24 newcomers) supporting patients and families affected by Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) to Frankfurt, Germany. Delegates from around the world (Europe, North America, Asia, Africa, Middle East and Latin America) came to Frankfurt to learn from experts both medical and patient advocates on the latest information about CML, share best practises in patient advocacy in order to grow their organisations in their own countries and give back to their own communities. We also featured a poster board where our members were able to present some of their activities that they have had during the year. In addition to this our members had the opportunity to submit abstracts and feature in our “best Practice session” on a successful activity they had on their own country. Furthermore, at this year's conference a new CML Horizons Steering Committee was elected.
