Meet the #AABB21 Twitter Champions

September 07, 2021

Whether we are connecting from across the street or across the planet, social media has transformed the way we learn and share information. For members of the AABB community, Twitter has become an invaluable tool to share knowledge, discuss key topics and learn from one another to advance transfusion medicine and biotherapies.  

Although we will not be meeting in person for the 2021 AABB Annual Meeting, our community will be powerfully connected online through a robust meeting platform and AABB’s social media channels. On Twitter, a group of 10 champions will share their views and updates about #AABB21.

We encourage you to log on, follow the 2021 Twitter champions, and share your perspectives before and during the 2021 AABB Annual Meeting using the #AABB21 hashtag.
