Education is shared as one of the top reasons for renewing a membership with or joining South Central.  We want to make sure that everyone has access to the phenomenal educational opportunities we offer without stressing an already stretched budget.  This is why we decided to offer SCABBinar’s completely free for our Individual, Physician and Student members which include P.A.C.E and Florida CE Broker credits.  In addition to free SCABBinars, members receive great discounts on other educational opportunities with South Central such as Regional Symposiums and the Annual Meeting.


We have taken our desire to offer affordable educational opportunities with South Central a step further.  We know that in a time when budgets are getting tighter this is especially true with students.  Student memberships are now free for those who are enrolled at least half-time in a blood banking or medical technology program and physicians in training who are in medical school, residency or a fellowship program.
