Building a More Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Blood Donor Community

Only 3% of eligible Americans donate blood each year, but recent federal guidance may help change that.

Join the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s Blood Diseases & Disorders Education Program, in partnership with the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies (AABB), for a community conversation about the latest in blood donor eligibility and the new individual donor assessment screening process.
