Major Grants Make Connect Possible

What portion of the expense budget for this year’s Cord Blood Connect international congress is covered by registration fees?

Would you believe 5%?

 

Here’s how that’s possible:

  • On the one hand, the total income from registration fees will be minimal because all individual members of the association were able to register at no cost, if they did so by Aug. 31.
  • On the other hand, a number of companies and organizations in the cord blood community are providing generous grants to support the congress.
