AABB and Fenwal Sponsor Third Annual Blood Collectors Week
Date:9/14/2007

People Nationwide Encouraged to Make a Blood Donation to Honor Blood

Collectors and Support Their Communities

LAKE ZURICH, Ill. and BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- During the week of September 16-22, 2007, blood collection centers across the United States will celebrate the 3rd Annual Blood Collectors Week sponsored by AABB and Fenwal, Inc. This celebratory week recognizes the important service blood collectors provide to communities nationwide in ensuring blood is available to meet critical patient needs.

"Blood collection professionals play an important role by educating donors and providing a safe and comfortable donation experience," said Karen Shoos Lipton, chief executive officer of AABB. "The care and concern that these dedicated individuals display helps to ensure that an adequate blood supply is readily available whenever and wherever our communities need it."

According to AABB, about 29 million units of blood components are transfused annually in the United States. Blood transfusions are a critical component in the treatment of people with serious medical conditions, including people undergoing cancer treatments, major surgeries, and accident and trauma victims. People typically receive transfusions of red blood cells, platelets and/or plasma and volunteer blood donors are the primary source of blood used for transfusions.

During this week-long celebration, people are encouraged to give back to their community and demonstrate their support for this honorable profession by making a blood donation.

"Blood collection professionals provide a critical service to the communities and patients they support, helping to improve and save lives on a daily basis," said Ron Labrum, Fenwal president and chief executive officer. "Blood Collectors Week is a tribute to this important profession and Fenwal is honored to join AABB and blood centers nationwide in recognizing these individuals."
