To wrap up Cord Blood Awareness Month, Cells4Life are hosting a webinar on Friday 31st July at 1pm. We’ll be discussing all things umbilical cord blood and why it is so important. Here’s everything you need to know for the webinar:
What is Cord Blood Awareness Month?
Cord Blood Awareness Month takes place each year in July and aims to raise awareness about the importance of saving umbilical cord blood amongst expectant parents.
The overall goal of Cord Blood Awareness Month is to make parents aware that there is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to save the powerful stem cells that umbilical cord blood contains – and that’s straight after the birth of their baby.
Today, there are over 80 different conditions and diseases that can be treated with umbilical cord blood, with thousands of clinical trials currently underway also using cord blood in treatments for cerebral palsy, Type 1 diabetes, and more.
What will be discussed in Cells4Life’s webinar?
We will be joined by our Chief Operations Officer, Claudia Rees, as well as our Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Lesley-Ann Martin to talk about the amazing regenerative potential of umbilical cord blood and why cord blood stem cells are so special.
Throughout the webinar, we will also be discussing COVID-19 and the medical potential of umbilical cord blood in treating the virus.
