Once again Marian University faculty, staff, and students will have a chance to donate blood to help those in need. The blood drive will be in the Clare Hall lounge from Noon to 6:00 p.m.
The entire process of donating takes less then an hour. A cholesterol, blood pressure, blood type, and iron check are included in your donation.
Most people are eligible to donate. There are very few causes for deferral and very few medications that are not acceptable. Donors cannot be taking antibiotics for infection. Cancer patients must be one year cancer free. Heart patients must be 6 months symptom free. Diabetics can donate.
It is recommended that donors have a light snack before donating DO NOT FAST – feel free to have some of our juice and cookies. Be sure to bring your picture ID!
