Following a closely contested run-off election for the position of Regional Director for North Americas, we welcome Dr Katerina Pavenski to the ISBT Board of Directors.
Katerina is is the Head of Division of Transfusion Medicine, clinical hematologist, medical director of the Therapeutic Apheresis Service and Co-director of the Patient Blood Management Program at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Canada.
Good news from our scientific journal Vox Sanguinis. From January 2023 Vox printing will be moved to the UK resulting in a significant reduction in carbon emissions.
The new printing company will also use recyclable or compostable packaging for the journal rather than plastic, and a matt cover which is recyclable unlike the current gloss cover that contains plastic.
At ISBT, we remain committed to sustainability and continue to lead and encourage others to join us in improving the health of our planet.
