Charles Drew Premedical Society Blood Drive

The Charles Drew Premedical Society is hosting a blood drive to enter the holiday season.

This event is co-sponsored by the New York Blood Center & Office of the President, Office of Government and Community Affairs.

This Friday November 15, 2013

Columbia Business School

URIS Hall – Hepburn Lounge

11:30am – 5:30pm

Every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood; 1 out of every 3 people will require a life-saving transfusion sometime during their lifetime. Unfortunately blood expires, creating a constant need to replenish the supply to ensure availability when needed. Won’t you save a life this fall before the holiday season?  Please sign up to donate today!

Click here to register to donate.  Advanced registration is highly recommended but Walk-ins are also welcomed!

Please email [email protected] with any questions.
