Blood drive February 16th

Blood drive sponsored by the College of Nursing's Undergraduate Nursing Senate
Recycle yourself! Give blood.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010
10am to 3:30pm
Dougherty Hall-West Lounge

Appointments preferred (sign up at http://www.pleasegiveblood.org/donate and enter sponsor #2031)

For 25 years, the Undergraduate Nursing Senate has been sponsoring blood drives on campus with the American Red Cross. That's a lot of lives saved by the Villanova community.

What happens to your blood? Blood may be used for whole blood transfusions or it is separated into its components including red blood cells, plasma, platelets, and cryoprecipitated AHF (antihemophilic factor). Each component can be transfused to different individuals with different needs. Therefore, each donation can be used to help save as many as three lives.

Who are you helping? Premature infants in NICUs, babies having open heart surgery, people with hemophilia, and trauma, cancer and burn patients among countless others.

You can help three people and give hope to their families and friends by being there February 2nd!
