Blood Science Foundation was proud to be the non-profit sponsor for Pittsburgh Magazine’s Best Doctors event held at Cochran Audi in the Strip District on May 9, 2019. We also acknowledged some of Vitalant Pittsburgh’s doctors and the life-saving work they do for local patients: (pictured left to right) Dr. Joseph Kiss, Dr. Alesia Kaplan, Dr. Darrell Triulzi, Dr. Irina Chibisov, and Dr. Andrea Cortese-Hassett. Also included in the photo are Blood Science Foundation staff members (left to right) Rachel Blanchard, Mark Giaquinto, and Shelley Miscampbell. During his speech, Mr. Giaquinto shared information related to the decline in Pittsburgh-area blood donors within the past 10 years. He stressed the urgent need for local awareness of the importance of regular blood donation, and reminded guests a monetary donation to Blood Science Foundation is an available alternative if someone cannot or will not donate blood.
