Cord Blood Awareness in Politics

This year the New York Senate passed a bill to promote public awareness about the benefits of cord blood banking. Thanks to bills such as this one, we hope cord blood banking is introduced to all expectant families so they too have the option to save these life-saving cells for their bundle of joy.

New York’s bill will creates a public umbilical cord blood banking program within the department of health to promote public awareness of the potential benefits of public cord banking, to promote research into the uses of cord blood, and to facilitate pre-delivery arrangements for public banking of cord blood donations.
