Section Meeting: Leadership for the Innovation Economy

Business is accelerating at a pace of change we have never seen before. Our world has entered a new era of disruption where change and innovation is the new normal, requiring strong and agile leadership and a comfort with the uncomfortable.

Thriving organizations already know this and depend on leaders to spearhead new ideas and transformative ways of thinking. It’s time to seize these opportunities, take your own leadership to a new level, and inspire your teams to take on the risk/reward challenge of leadership in the innovation economy.

This proprietary program is designed for motivated business professionals who want to move the leadership needle in their organizations, with the ultimate goal of creating lasting and measurable value for all shareholders.

QUALITY IN BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION

Bone marrow transplants are now routinely carried out worldwide to treat people with cancer and other disorders of the blood and immune system and are a prime example of a successful stem cell therapy. Stem cells from bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood are used in transplantation procedures. From the first successful bone marrow transplant involving identical twins in the late 1950s to cutting edge research of today, the emphasis on quality has evolved and has led to the establishment of standards and regulations. This presentation will focus on a brief history of the development of bone marrow transplantation accreditation standards and regulations.
