Conference History

ASFA, officially formed in 1981, has been the proud host to 34 highly successful scientific conferences. Last year's Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado had over 500 participants, including registered delegates, exhibitors and other corporate representatives. The meeting is the only one of its kind that offers a focus on apheresis medicine in both the donor and patient settings. It is a key educational and networking event for physicians, scientists, and allied health professionals in the field of apheresis medicine.



ASFA Annual Meeting delegates are evenly divided between MD and/or PhD clinicians and scientists and allied health professionals who practice donor or therapeutic apheresis medicine. Other delegates also include regulatory professionals, corporate management, and marketing personnel. The majority of delegates practice in the US. ASFA expects participants of the 2014 Annual Meeting to be broken down similar to past years.

ASFA is thrilled to be partnering with WAA for the ASFA and WAA Joint Conference. WAA is an umbrella organization for national and international professional societies devoted to apheresis. This partnership promises to bring an exciting international representation to the conference!
