The Save the Cord Foundation hosted the annual World Cord Blood Day on November 17, 2020. In addition to a virtual conference, many organizations conducted outreach and hosted educational events to promote cord blood banking.
FACT was again an inspiring partner of World Cord Blood Day. In support of this event, FACT hosted a webinar with Héma-Québec and Liège Cord Blood Banks. Dr. Catherine Faucher and Dr. Maude Dumont-Lagace discussed the current progress using UM171-expanded cord blood transplantation, as well as the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on cord blood collection and transplantation in France. The webinar was complimentary and presented in French. The recording is now available free of charge in the FACT Store!
