ASFA Celebrates Apheresis Awareness Day

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 7 :: Thursday, September 17th, 2020

On September 15, 2020, the American Society for Apheresis (ASFA) celebrated Apheresis Awareness Day. The purpose for this observance is to raise awareness of apheresis medicine, including apheresis practitioners and the donors and patients they save every day using evidence-based practice.

The awareness day included an official hashtag (#ApheresisDay2020), online games including Jeopardy and Apheresis Word Scramble, and a Question of the Day.

We at FACT extend our heartfelt appreciation to apheresis professionals around the world, including physicians, nurses, technicians, scientists, quality managers, and more who work as an important team performing life-saving work every day. We acknowledge the extensive role they play both in providing standard of care therapy and cutting edge research. Apheresis professionals are in high demand because the work they do is so important. Thank you for all that you do!
