FACT Cord Blood Inspection and Accreditation Workshop at the 2020 Cord Blood Connect International Congress Officially Cancelled

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 4 :: Thursday, June 18th, 2020

The CBA Board of Directors has announced that this year’s Cord Blood Connect international congress will be a virtual event.  The directors agreed that the risks to participant health and safety in the midst of a worldwide pandemic are just too great for the planned in-person gathering. The congress was scheduled for Sept. 10-12 in Miami Beach and will now be held virtually on two non-consecutive days, Sept. 10 and 17. For more information, please visit the Cord Blood Virtual Connect meeting website. 

Because the Cord Blood Connect international congress will now be a virtual event, the in-person FACT Cord Blood Inspection and Accreditation Workshop scheduled for September 9, 2020, is cancelled. FACT is currently evaluating the options for virtual meetings this fall.
