Young Investigator Awards


CAHON gives travel awards to Young Investigators to foster growth and achievement amongst CAHON’s early career or physician-in-training members. The award is based on the scientific merit of abstracts accepted to either the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting or the American Society of Hematology (ASH). The Young Investigator Awards are traditionally handed out during the Semi Annual Summer and Winter Symposiums.
