The Advanced Immunohematology and Molecular Symposium (AIMS) has accompanied the annual SCABB conference the past five years. It was designed to be targeted towards people passionate about Immunohematology and seeking continuing education in the fields of Immunohematology and/or reference laboratory work including molecular testing.

In order to stay relevant, provide easy national access for the symposium’s attendees and organize an outstanding program for your professional development it was decided that the AIMS symposium will be offered in conjunction with the SCABB annual meeting every other year.

AIMS will be offered in 2021 in keeping with the every other year rotation.  To stay up to date on the planning and location, SUBSCRIBE to Pulse, the Association’s e-newsletter.
