Graduation Specialist in Blood Bank Program

Graduation from the UTMB SBB program is a special occasion. Graduation is held in conjunction with the L. Jean Stubbins' Memorial Lectureship. So we have a special guest each year who participates in the fun as well as a graduation for the students from the year long program. There is a big dinner party with fun activities for the staff, lecturers and special invited guests.
