The Heart of America Association of Blood Banks is a nonprofit, professional organization dedicated to improving Transfusion Medicine by fostering the exchange of information and bringing education opportunities to blood bank and transfusion medicine professionals.  The HAABB hosts two annual meetings for the Kansas City & St Louis areas. 









We had another successful Spring Meeting!

The HAABB Board of Directors appreciates all of the fabulous speakers who educated everyone on a variety of topics ranging from Massive Transfusion, Pediatric Whole Blood Usage, Problems with Blood Bank Testing, Patient Blood Management, and Disaster Planning and Recovery.  Attendance was great this year and we look forward to seeing everyone at future meetings!  Eighteen vendors exhibited at this event and two vendors sponsored sessions.  Quotient and Community Blood Center of Greater Kansas City sponsored two of our speakers.  We are grateful for their continued support of this educational event.

The Spring Meeting Review includes brief descriptions of the presentations

as well as short bios of the presenting speakers.
