Blood Collectors Week was co-created and is sponsored by AABB, the global association for individuals and institutions in the fields of transfusion medicine, cellular therapies and patient blood management; and Fresenius Kabi, a global health care company that specializes in medicines and transfusion technologies.During Blood Collectors Week, more than 200 blood centers across the U.S. will host celebrations and tributes. Participating blood centers and donors are encouraged to submit a success story online ( to highlight those who have gone above and beyond in supporting the nation’s blood supply or in creating a positive donor experience. Health care professionals associated with blood collection include phlebotomists, apheresis operators, medical directors and donor recruiters.
“Together with AABB, we applaud the compassion, commitment, skill and dedication of professional blood collectors. We honor them this week for the incredible work they do year-round and during times of crisis,” said Dean Gregory, president, medical devices at Fresenius Kabi USA. “We are thankful to the blood collectors across the country who are providing donated blood to areas of need in Texas as the devastation from Hurricane Harvey continues.”Participants in Blood Collectors Week are encouraged to show their support for the week on social media by sharing pictures and using the hashtags #BloodCollectorsWeek and #SavingLives. Blood Collectors Week is on twitter @bloodcollectors.Blood is an essential medicine, and blood transfusions are a critical component in the treatment of people with serious medical conditions, including patients with cancer, organ transplant recipients, and accident and trauma victims.
