EHA 2017: Application for a free registration for patient advocates

The European Hematology Association (EHA) is providing 50 free congress registrations for leaders of hematology patient organisations, to give patient advocates the opportunity to attend the EHA 2017 Congress, 22-25 June 2017 in Madrid, Spain.

You can apply for a free registration of the congress now, a so called "EHA Fellowship". These Fellowships are available only to representatives of patient organisations, not for patients in their individual interest. The free registration allows full access to the scientific congress, but will not cover travel or accommodation costs. Disease-specific patient umbrella organisations might in addition give travel grants to receivers of the EHA Fellowship.

EHA is requiring all EHA Fellowship receivers to attend the EHA / EuroBloodNet Patient Advocates Capacity Building Session on Saturday 22 June, 14:00-17:00, and 20:45-22:00 -- participation is mandatory to all EHA Fellows, and not participating there will actually make getting future EHA Fellowships unlikely.

Deadline for applications is 29th April 2017. We will do our best to allocate the 50 free registrations fairly amongst organisations and advocates, and to notify you in early May so you can book your travels. Please note this is an application - registrations are to be confirmed by the EHA office.
