Recognizing and Honoring the Community

AATB recognizes outstanding individuals within the tissue banking community with three annual award categories; the Communication and Education Awards, Achievement Awards, and Abstract Awards. These awards are all presented at the AATB Annual Meeting each fall.

AATB also honors tissue recipients through our sponsorship of the Donate Life Rose Parade Float. Every year, AATB sponsors one winning tissue recipient, who is nominated by one of our accredited tissue banks, to be a rider on the Donate Life Float. The float rider is also featured as a speaker at the AATB Annual Meeting.

AATB is honored both to be able to celebrate the commitment and achievements of tissue banking professionals through our award programs, and to have the opportunity to recognize tissue recipients on a national level through our Rose Parade sponsorship program.
