Her HABX 2021

About the event

The concept of HABX (Hematology Analyzer Based Xchanges) has always revolved around the exchange of scientific knowledge through “Haemocytomorphometry” series in the form of presentations and activities through events.

After multiple successful events on a national level, we decided to explore a different way of portraying knowledge by confining our boundaries on regional basis with special inputs from national speakers as well. For the northern region, we decided to praise the contribution of women pathologists in the field of hematology. Therefore, it was a subtle initiative of scientific team to conduct the event, with this year’s theme as “Her HABX”, a two-day scientific program, which was exclusively meant for women pathologists, as a small gesture to appreciate those who have contributed immeasurably to the subject of ‘Hematology’.

The event was initiated by the presidential address by Dr Rajeev Gautam; Corporate Officer, HORIBA Ltd., Japan; President, HORIBA India Pvt. Ltd.
