Cord Blood Awareness Month is celebrated in the month of July. This time on the calendar is set aside to raise awareness about the importance of preserving newborn umbilical cord blood and tissue, as well as the valuable stem cells that they contain. These stem cells can now be used in the treatment of more than 80 diseases and conditions.

The Campaign for Cord Blood Banking Awareness
In partnership with the Save the Cord Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to cord blood banking awareness and education, BioInformant has launched an awareness campaign titled, “Cord Blood Banking Awareness: Educating America and the World.”
Education: Cord Blood Awareness Month
The campaign is a global effort that will educate currently expecting parents, as well as future parents, grandparents, siblings, and friends, about the medical benefits of cord blood preservation. The campaign involves the distribution of facts about cord blood banking awareness, as well as the distribution of media content and videos sharing factual information about cord blood banking awareness rates in the U.S. and other countries worldwide.
