Armenian Bone Marrow Donow Registy Representatives Visit the Prelacy

On Tuesday, January 22, 2013, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, welcomed Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry (ABMDR) Board of Directors members, led by President Dr. Frieda Jordan. Renowned physician Dr. Antranik Mshetsian, who is working with the ABMDR in Armenia, accompanied the delegation.

The meeting began with the guests conveying their New Year well wishes to the Prelate. They then reported on the organization’s endeavors focusing on the treatment of illnesses that are difficult to treat and the registering of blood and marrow donors. Dr. Jordan announced that by mid-February a specialty center will open in Armenia, the only one of its kind in the Caucuses,  with new technology and means to better treat patients.  The representatives also reported on the working relationship between Armenia and a number of countries to provide specialized support to better assist those who turn to the ABMDR for help.

The Prelacy and the ABMDR also have a long history of collaboration, and every year a day is chosen for the organization to set up information booths at Prelacy Churches to reach out to the community and register donors.  This year’s outreach effort will take place in March.

The Prelate highly commended the vital work carried out by the dedicated members of the ABMDR, and wished them success in their current and future projects.
