I am thrilled to share my first ASH abstract which was accepted as an online publication only! I could only dream of seeing my name on the Blood website a couple of years back but now it is real now. I was lucky to be a part of very bright researchers and an exemplary mentor.
I was scrolling my Twitter feed and saw a tweet about mentorship opportunities for International Medical Graduates. I filled out so many forms to this day and wasn’t expecting so much from this opportunity but still, I wanted to give it a shot. I could pick a mentor from the list and Dr. Leonardo Pozo from Baylor College of Medicine seemed like the best fit for me as he is a nephrology fellow and I want to be an internist. A couple of days after I received an email from Dr. Pozo with ten more people. He wanted to do a zoom meeting with us but I couldn’t participate because of time restrictions. Well, it was 3 a.m. here.
After a while, Dr. Pozo mentioned the possibility of writing a case report and review together. I was interested in it instantly. We started working on the review, however, we couldn’t complete it in a short time so we decided to prepare the case report alone as an abstract for a congress. Aaand, here we are. Our abstract was accepted as an online publication only for the 64th American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting.
We presented an Idiopathic Multicentric Castleman’s Disease patient with Concurrent Renal Involvement.
