50 Years of Service to Our Community
During NYBC’s first decade, man first set foot on the moon. During the second decade, the VCR was invented and the world was captivated by StarWars. During the third, the fall of the Berlin Wall marked the end of Communism in Europe. During the fourth, the United States both enjoyed economic prosperity and mourned the tragedy of the 9-11 terrorist attack. And during the fifth decade, social media exploded and changed the way we communicate forever. Over the past five decades, NYBC made significant contributions to transfusion medicine locally, nationally and globally. Our contributions to community health during this vibrant period paved the way for the significant impact we will continue to make moving forward. NYBC redefined and transformed our organization into Blood Services, Medical Services, Research and the National Cord Blood Program at the Howard P. Milstein Cord Blood Center. As we continue this focus, we expect to further improve our community’s health, and our future holds even greater promise.
