The Advisory Committee on Blood Safety and Availability is meeting November 4-5, 2010. The first order of business for today’s session was the swearing in of new members.

NCHS is proud to announce that Ed Burke, Director of Advocacy and Outreach/Interstate Sales for Ethical Factor, a division of NCHS, has been appointed to a four year term on the committee. When discussing his appointment, Ed remarked “I understand how important this appointment is and plan to work very hard.”聽 Ed has a long history of advocating for the safety of America’s blood supply. He has severe hemophilia A so he is very sensitive to the dangers that the blood supply can create.

We applaud Ed’s appointment and congratulate him on this important achievement.
