Technical Manual Editors to Host Book Signing During 2023 Annual Meeting

September 26, 2023

AABB Technical Manual editor-in-chief Claudia S. Cohn, MD, PhD, and associate editor Susan T. Johnson, MSTM, MT(ASCP)SBBCM, will hold a special book-signing event at the 2023 Annual Meeting to celebrate the release of this landmark publication. The book signing will take place Sunday, Oct. 15, from 1-3 p.m. CT near AABB Central. 

A must-have resource for generations of transfusion medicine professionals, the AABB Technical Manual details the full spectrum of blood collection and transfusion: quality and regulatory issues, donor eligibility, component preparation, blood groups, antigen/antibody testing, transfusion practice (including special situations and patients), and transfusion outcomes. Additionally, the 21st edition captures the late-breaking changes to donor eligibility recommended by the Food and Drug Administration released weeks before AABB's release of the new edition.

In addition to Cohn and Johnson, the editorial team for the 21st edition includes Meghan Delaney, DO, MPH; Louis M. Katz, MD; and Joseph (Yossi) Schwartz, MD, MPH.

The Technical Manual will be on sale at the AABB bookstore throughout the Annual Meeting; those not attending the Annual Meeting can purchase the 21st edition in print or digital editions in the AABB Store.
