History of ASH and Hematology


In April 1958, the first official ASH meeting was held in Atlantic City, NJ, where more than 300 hematologists gathered to discuss clinical and research matters related to blood and blood diseases. Since that initial meeting, ASH has played an active and important role in the development of hematology as a discipline. For more than five decades, ASH has sponsored its annual meeting, the premier annual education and scientific event in the field of hematology, and has published Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology, which is the most cited peer-reviewed publication in the field.


In 2008, ASH celebrated its 50th anniversary and used this historical milestone to reflect on the progress that has been made in the field.
