Date:11/12/2008

and her unborn baby at risk

Lovett was inspired to make the film after researching the topic and learning about the connection between blood-related issues and general health.

"We followed the lives and work of these incredible doctors for several months, and the complexity of the work they do treating patients and researching their underlying blood disorders was staggering," he said. "Most people are unaware of how many health issues can be solved and dealt with through blood tests and subsequent treatment by a hematologist."

The show was made possible with the support of ASH and the following Institutes and Center of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Center for Research Resources.

After its premiere on Discovery Health, BLOOD DETECTIVES will be distributed through a grassroots campaign in which individuals and groups will be offered tools to host their own screenings of the film. Information about the film can be found on the consumer awareness campaign Web site, http://www.bloodthevitalconnection.org, which provides hematologist-approved health information.

"Millions of Americans are affected by blood disorders each day," said Kenneth Kaushansky, MD, President of the American Society of Hematology. "BLOOD DETECTIVES and http://www.bloodthevitalconnection.org provide these people, as well as family members and others, with the information they need about blood disorders and the doctors who treat them."
