ASFA 2018 Regional Meeting

 ASFA 2018 Regional Meeting 

The 5th Regional Meeting of the American Society for Apheresis (ASFA) will take place September 7th, 2018 at UC College of Medicine, Kresge Auditorium in Cincinnati, Ohio.   

The ASFA Regional Meeting was created in order to fulfill the unmet need for a smaller and more intimate apheresis educational meeting. The goals of this meeting are to provide improved topic-specific learning and to provide an additional educational and networking opportunity for apheresis professionals, especially for those who may be unable to travel to the Annual Meeting. The ASFA 2018 Regional Meeting Program will include topics that review basic apheresis skills with an emphasis on both donor and therapeutic apheresis, presented by regional speakers. There will be over 100 regional delegates at the ASFA 2018 Regional Meeting. Delegates will include physicians and allied health professionals in the field of apheresis or apheresis-related practice.
