2017 Annual Meeting Highlights

The Annual Meeting is always a fantastic opportunity for us to promote the AATB’s values of professional development and education within the tissue banking community. We were proud that 90 percent of the content presented during the 2017 Annual Meeting was new. In addition, a new learning track, focused on donor family services, was added to the meeting this year. Also for the first time, we offered education credits for Certified Surgical Technologists and those in the sterile processing and resource management fields. These factors, combined with the hard work of the AATB staff and committee volunteers, created another successful meeting — with 96 percent of survey respondents reporting that the meeting met their expectations.

Thank you again to everyone who participated in the 2017 AATB Annual Meeting.
