Welcome to the SABM Fall Newsletter!

With this Fall 2017 Edition of the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (SABM) Newsletter, you will find it focused, as anticipated, on news, views, events, and updates from the September 2017 Annual Meeting, which was held in Portland, Oregon.

If you were able to attend, the Newsletter Team hopes you can review many of the notable presentations or merely scan the many pictures to remind you of the professional networking and friendships we have within this Society.  

If you were unable to join us in Portland, we hope you can find the Newsletter helpful for highlighting the most important topics, upcoming publications, outstanding research, and educational opportunities that continue to be available to all SABM members and hospital affiliates.

The Newsletter Team also wishes to say “thank you” to our membership, affiliates, exhibitors, sponsors, and our hosts in Portland, which contributed to the success of the Annual Meeting. 

Enjoy the next few pages and please mark your calendars for the 2018 Annual Meeting, which will take place in New York, September 13 – 15, 2018.
