The Allied Health club of CW in collaboration with the regional American Red Cross organized a blood drive.
Allied Health students had the experience of donating blood and assisting the Red Cross team. It was a rewarding experience for both students and staff and faculty. Thanks to our enthusiastic group of Allied Health students, the blood drive translated into having 72 lives potentially impacted!
The Red Cross is constantly working to increase the availability of blood and blood products. This includes educating potential donors about healthy habits that will reduce deferrals such as for low iron, improving the yield from platelet donors and using containers that extend the time that blood can be safely shipped. Increasing diverse blood donor recruitment is critical to the future of our Nation’s blood supply.
