Washington Update is a bi-monthly primer on government related issues of importance to COTT’s constituency. From health care legislation, to regulatory affairs to Administration policy for chronic diseases. A hands-on journal for grass roots health care advocacy in our Nation’s capital.
COTT Canary tracks safety issues in our Nation’s blood supply. It provides regular reporting, information and viewpoints from the grass roots end user communities. It is based on the historical practice of taking Canaries into the coalmines to gauge problems with breathable air. If the Canary passed out then it was time to evacuate the mine. Persons with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders are the canaries in the coalmine, the blood supply. If problems are present they will surface first in the hemophilia community.
