Like Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye, several hemostasis-related organizations have changed their names…
- In 2005 The American Association of Blood Banks changed its name to a simple “AABB.” However, as of 2021, AABB is the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies [AABB].
- In August of 2023, the American Association for Clinical Chemistry [AACC] updated its name to the Association for Diagnostics and Laboratory Medicine [ADLM].
- And here is an August 24 news release from the National Hemophilia Foundation: “Over its 75-year history, the foundation has evolved to serve those facing other inheritable blood and bleeding disorders such as von Willebrand disease, rare factor deficiencies, platelet disorders, and more. Through a powerful combination of research, education, and advocacy, the foundation has improved the lives of people and families with many different blood and bleeding disorders. And now, its name reflects this: The National Hemophilia Foundation is now the National Bleeding Disorders Foundation [NBDF].”
