Meet our SBB Participants 

The Indiana Blood Center Specialist in Blood Banking (SBB) program began in 2005 with one participant and is continually growing and expanding the offerings for local and national participants. Participants from all parts of the United States are able to successfully train because of the online aspect of the program. They are only required to come to Indianapolis for one week at the beginning of the program for orientation. The remainder of the program may be completed at the participant's blood banking/transfusion service community.
