Event Description


Join us for an ASH open house reception at Water Grill San Diego, located on J Street in San Diego on Thursday, December 8 from 6-9 pm as we share how our HealthTree data from 13,000 myeloma patients enabled by revolutionary HealthTree technology can enable your research FOR FREE. Drinks and appetizers will be available all evening. 

Come and learn about the HealthTree Cure Hub data portal that includes over 13,000 myeloma patients and how we can facilitate your research for free through data mining, chart reviews, surveys and studies. See what type of data we have, how it is entered via direct connections in the EHR, how it is validated and how other myeloma investigators are partnering with HealthTree on key research projects. 

We will have open technology stations, our technical and research teams present for Q&A and 20 minute presentations from HealthTree CEO and Founder at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 about the HealthTree model. 

We will be issuing a call for proposals in Spring of 2024 where we provide free research data and assistance to investigators for selected investigator projects. Our goal is to help you accelerate a myeloma cure.

For researchers focusing on additional blood cancers, please come and learn how our innovative HealthTree model is being replicated in 41 additional blood cancers and how HealthTree could help your disease research in leukemias, lymphomas and MPNs. 

Please RSVP to attend and we look forward to seeing you there!
