Bone marrow BASH
SNAP-Villanova members Erica Peters (front left) and Shannon Markert (second row left) volunteered with football Coach Andy Talley and members of Villanova's football team and cheerleading squad at the sold-out March 2nd Bone Marrow Donor Bash held at the Connelly Center. Members of Villanova's chapter of the Student Nurses' Association of Pennsylvania have been volunteering with Coach Talley and the football team for years at the Bone Marrow Donor Drive.
Dr. Carol Weingarten, SNAP-Villanova advisor notes, "Do consider volunteering at the upcoming event, Tuesday, April 9, Connelly Center. The Bone Marrow Donor Drive will take place from 9-5:00. It's a great day of painless (simple cheek swab) screening for potential donors and a great opportunity to be part of an awesome event for an important cause."
