Greetings from Tennessee Association of Blood Banks (TABB)! We are a Tennessee not-for-profit organization dedicated to offering continuing education for blood bankers and other professionals involved in transfusion medicine. We offer state wide educational seminars twice a year and welcome all blood bankers to join us. This year we added community outreach in the form of “TABB Cares”. At our spring meeting, we collected 3 boxes of personal care items for one of the local shelters!
On behalf of the TABB Board, I would like to thank everyone who is part of our organization for their dedication to patient care and scientific advancement. For those who are new to TABB, we would like to welcome you to our organization. We hope to have a great year!
With almost 30 years’ experience working in a donor center, I have been immersed in everything from recruiting donors to solving antibody identification through adsorption. Providing safe, compatible blood to all patients has been a primary goal most all my life.
I am honored to be your president this year.
