Organizations Raise Awareness of Blood Cancer at ASH, Announce 2019 Innovation Teamwork
Durham, North Carolina, 30 November 2018 PSI CRO and Gift of Life Marrow Registry are teaming up to recruit ASH attendees to join the bone marrow registry this year during the American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting in San Diego, California. In addition, PSI CRO is also announcing the support of the Gift of Life Apheresis Center launching in 2019.
The ASH Annual Meeting hosts more than 25,000 hematology professionals in San Diego during a four-day conference. PSI CRO is excited to partner with the Gift of Life Marrow Registry at ASH 2018 to bring awareness to blood cancer and the life-saving possibilities of the marrow registry.
At the conference, PSI CRO will announce and share details of their partnership with Gift of Life to support their Apheresis Center launching in 2019. The in-house Apheresis Center is the first of its kind, and will support donors in South Florida and surrounding areas to make stem cell collections more convenient, comfortable, and available to all.
Gift of Life Marrow Registry specializes in engaging the public to build and increase the marrow registry to end blood-related cancers and diseases. “At PSI, we’re proud to support Gift of Life. Our long-standing experience in hematology clinical trials means we have a deep understanding of the patients’ experience,” said PSI CRO Senior Director of Operations Rhonda Critchlow. “Supporting an organization dedicated to finding an end for blood cancer is close to our hearts.”
“PSI CRO has been an enthusiastic partner in our mission to save lives, inviting their own employees to join the registry for the opportunity to save a patient’s life,” said Gift of Life Marrow Registry CEO and Founder Jay Feinberg. “They are taking that commitment even further by supporting our new Stem Cell Collection (Apheresis) Center. We will open our registry-integrated state-of-the-art collection center in April 2019, which will improve efficiency, streamline operations and increase service level to patients, transplants centers and donors.”
