Robert Medcalf, Ph.D. previewed the upcoming 2019 ISTH Congress that will take place in Melbourne, Australia. As a native of Melbourne, he was particularly excited about this wonderful location. The 2019 Congress will be the first of a new format for the ISTH: one where the SSC Annual Congress will be folded in with the ISTH Congress for one joint, annual Congress. Nearly 6,000 participants are expected to attend. Interestingly, the new logo for this Congress was designed by aboriginal artist, Mick Harding.
