The registration period for this meeting has ended.

Join your cord blood colleagues for a day of presentations from renowned cord blood experts at the inaugural WMDA-NetCord & FACT Cord Blood Day! The event will be held in Miami, Florida on September 14, 2018, in conjunction with the Cord Blood Connect international congress.

The WMDA-NetCord & FACT Cord Blood Day will highlight issues that affect cord blood banks’ abilities to optimize processes within a challenging environment. The evolving demand for umbilical and cord blood products requires banks to consider changing indications and financial limitations on a continuous basis. Accreditation encourages implementation of efficient, quality-driven processes to meet these demands while banking products suitable for clinical administration.

Morning presentation topics include global perspectives of cord blood transplants, ethical dilemmas in cord blood banking, common FACT-NetCord accreditation citations, and an overview of the WMDA cord blood bank survey. The afternoon has two breakout sessions including a FACT inspector training track and a WMDA-NetCord & FACT cord blood quality boot camp track. We encourage banks to send multiple personnel to attend the various tracks as well as enlist a member to become a FACT inspector.

This is an excellent opportunity to network with the cord blood community and learn from experts in cord blood banking. Registration fees are waived for FACT active and trainee inspectors.
