This event followed the plan that we have established as our standard for a free-standing workshop, namely a 5-day “wet” workshop (in this case for 15 students) followed by a 1-day case studies seminar to which all who can attend are welcome. This workshop was held at the Lions Blood Bank in New Delhi hosted by Dr. Poonam Srivastava. Future plans include multiple similar workshops at this facility where a cache of the needed equipment has been established. Faculty included Ms Susan Johnson and Dr. Jim Perkins. In addition to the support provided by the lions blood bank, additional support for this event was generously provided by the International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT), and by NorthShore University HealthSystem, Dr. Perkins home institution.
