The Organizing Committee of ASFA 2020 Annual Meeting is pleased to offer a tour of We Are Blood, 4300 N Lamar Blvd, Austin, Texas.
| || |
We Are Blood has been in operation since 1951, and is the only community blood bank for a 10-county area. Of our three fixed sites around Austin, the Lamar location houses a donor center, all of our component and other labs, administrative offices, as well as our Clinical Services department, which provides Therapeutic Apheresis services for Austin’s pediatric and adult populations. Those services include therapeutic plasma exchange, red blood cell exchange (acute and chronic procedures), white blood cell depletions, and platelet depletions. We have a mobile team of nurses that provide these services to patients in need at other facilities. Additionally, we perform cellular collections at our main facility in conjunction with physician offices, and perform special donations such as therapeutic phlebotomy, autologous donation, and directed/dedication donations.
Date: Wednesday, May 6, 2020
Time: 2:00PM – 4:00PM
Only open to registered delegates of the ASFA 2020 Annual Meeting.
Advanced registration is required and limited to 40 delegates.
