Help me create a π•Šβ„‚π”Έβ„π• Halloween episode of #BBGEssentials πŸ—£οΈ this month! Respond here with an example of an urgent, scary situation in #bloodbanking (eg, massively bleeding patient during a blood shortage) & you might hear @MarkFungMDPhD & I discuss it! #blooducation πŸŽƒπŸˆβ€β¬›πŸ‘» https://t.co/mx5n4zqahH

1/5 One of the best things about #AABB20 is getting information straight from #FDA. Right now, Drs Peter Marks and Nicole Verdun answering questions about Covid Convalescent Plasma LIVE. See thread for answers to some important questions. #blooducation

Pet peeve alert! Sue is a stickler for terminology, and she wants you to use the terminology correctly. Remember, if you can't use a superscript, you don't need parentheses & you don't need a "^" to indicate a superscript. See images for more tips. #AABB20 @SueTJohnson https://t.co/8U3oJYrFdc
