TRANSFUSION’s Monthly Podcast

TRANSFUSION’s Monthly Podcast will examine questions big and small about transfusion medicine and its role in supporting patients and society. The TRANSFUSION podcast will highlight new individual scientific publications in TRANSFUSION but will also tackle broader topics (e.g., issues of race and social justice) that relate to transfusion medicine or in some cases, medicine more generally.
