CAP Media Briefing
The College of American Pathologists (CAP) hosted a virtual media briefing featuring leading pathologists—the physicians who biopsy and diagnose disease.
This year, the focus was on the current blood supply shortage, as well as navigating COVID-19 changes to the resurgence of polio. Panelists addressed the current state of the nation’s blood supply, discuss the reasons why our blood bank balances are always low and coping with the shortages, how to use the blood available more efficiently and how blood banks prepare for mass casualty situations, especially in light of trending gun violence. Panelists also discussed the essential role testing and pathologists continue to play when it comes to the current wave of health conditions the country continues to face and as new challenges unfold. How do we ensure we are testing right to get the best results and what tests are essential.
