Thorofare, NJ — Healio is set to host the inaugural hematology/oncology Disruptive Innovators Award Reception during the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting (ASCO 2022). The event will take place on June 4, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

Hosted by Shikha Jain, MD, FACP, and Edward S. Kim, MD, MBA, this event will celebrate the movers, shakers, and industry-name-makers in hematology/oncology. Each of the awardees has changed the face of hematology/oncology and pushed the status quo toward the betterment of the field.

“I am proud to be hosting an event along with Dr. Kim that recognizes those that have revolutionized aspects of hematology/oncology,” said Shikha Jain, MD, FACP. “The honorees are paving the way for the innovative future of the field.”

Healio/HemOnc Today will honor Disruptive Innovators in eight different categories:
