Announcing World Cord Blood Day 2021 - Educating Healthcare Professionals & Expectant Parents
We are pleased to announce World Cord Blood Day 2021 (WCBD 2021) will take place on November 15th, 2021 for students, expectant parents and healthcare professionals around the globe. More than 40,000 cord blood transplants have been performed worldwide since 1988 to treat over 80 life-threatening diseases. Yet, cord blood is still thrown away as medical waste in the majority of births, often due to a simple lack of awareness. In the new post-Covid world, we can and must improve this.
