SOHO Ambassador Program

In an effort to increase geographical diversity and promote international understanding among hematologic oncology experts from different parts of the world, the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO) has created the SOHO Ambassador Program. Each member of the program acts as an ambassador for the Society in their respective country, both by informing the Society about important developments in hematologic oncology in their regions, and by helping to disseminate information about the Society and its activities to others in their country. The members of the program are listed in the following section.
