Excellent post Jummy! You did an outstanding job highlighting all of the topics that were discussed during the MGR last week. Similar to Jordan, I was also very interested to learn about the growth and trajectory of transfusion medicine in 2021.

The need to have blood donors across various cultures and backgrounds in order to achieve a diverse supply of blood and to provide greater access to rare phenotypes, continues to remain. The post-rounds discussion allowed me to become more aware of the range in barriers that continue to inhibit individuals from donating blood. I hope more educational sessions and initiatives that use culturally-relevant messaging are developed and implemented in order to address concerns and to provide accurate information about donations.

Ultimately, I am looking forward to following the growth of transfusion medicine for years to come.
