Special Editions

July 2012In the wake of Japan’s unprecedented earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis, governments around the world urged their citizens to leave. Kenneth Nollet, a transfusion medicine specialist at Fukushima Medical University, decided to stay. Just 57 kilometers from a crippled nuclear plant, and adjacent to the tsunami disaster area, Dr. Nollet shared news, photographs, and personal observations through the CBBS Today website, as events unfolded in Japan. These quickly became the most visited web pages of any managed by CBBS. The original content has now been incorporated into journal articles that combine historical authenticity with new information and analysis. Special issues of CBBS Today – Journal of the California Blood Bank Society (Volume XXX Numbers 2-4) are freely available to all readers.
