UWM Multicultural Blood Drive

February 22 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Support the Multicultural Blood Drive by signing up: Link to Appointment Schedule: https://bit.ly/uwmfeb22 (appointment not necessary). Blood from a donor of a similar ethnic background is less likely to be rejected by the patient and often results in fewer complications after a transfusion. Increasing the proportion of diverse blood donations is essential to reducing blood transfusion complications, particularly in individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD) and thalassemia.

This blood drive is held in the Union Fireside Lounge. For more information, or to request accommodations, please contact:  pryor@uwm.edu 

Sponsored by the Black Student Cultural Center, the Black Student Union, and Versiti/Blood Center of Wisconsin. Click here for other Black History Month events at UWM.
