CML Advocacy: Learn. Share. Grow. 

17 - 19 May 2019, Lisbon, Portugal

 

banner1HZ19The 17th International CML Horizons Conference was held in Lisbon, Portugal from the 17th to 19th May 2019

This year we greeted a record 119 participants and welcomed 22 newcomers who all support the CML Community worldwide with a very active engagement in Social Media by sharing, making comments and networking in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram during the meeting.

Hundreds of posts on the Facebook Pages of the CML patient advocates and groups were informing thousands of people worldwide and more than 300 Tweets using the hashtag #CMLHZ19 got a large impact on the online CML community with more than 11.000 impressions on this social media channel.

Our participants were given the opportunity to hear from 21 speakers from both medical and patient advocate specialists.

In addition to the expert presentations from our acclaimed speakers our participants once again through the interactive regional workshops collectively played a role in strengthening the regions.

The conference also offers cross border networking where delegates were able to share best practices, interact and exchange ideas.

The poster session has become extremely popular and 21 advocates showcased their organisations' activities.

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".
