THANK YOU!
 
 
HAABB has been providing blood bank and transfusion medicine education to the "Heart of America" for 50 years!  We could not have done this without YOU!!  Your attendance at these meetings is what drives us to continue each year!  We also could not have done this without the support of speakers who want to share their knowledge and vendors who give us tremendous support. 
 
So to all of you, HAABB says
THANK YOU!
