CHAPEL HILL, NC, USA – February 7, 2018The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), a global not-for-profit advancing the understanding, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of thrombotic and bleeding disorders, today announced upcoming ISTH Congress locations for 2020 through 2022.
