Blood Drive and Bone Marrow Registry Drive


UNM-Gallup MLT Program will be hosting two life-saving events - a Blood Drive and a Bone Marrow Registry Drive on Thursday, September 12, 2019 (9:00AM to 2:00PM) at Gurley Hall Commons Area. 



BLOOD DRIVE 

Please help our community by donating blood or recruiting donors. There is always a need for blood and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and every pint of blood you donate can save up to 3 lives!

Who can donate? Here are the basic requirements for blood donation:

  • Must be at least 16 years old (16- and 17-year-olds must bring a signed permission form from a  parent or guardian, if required by state or school). minor donor permit
  • Weigh at least 110 pounds.
  • Be in good general health.
  • For your safety and to ensure a positive donation experience, make sure you eat within two hours ahead of your donation. Drink plenty of water that day and 24 to 48 hours beforehand. Feel free to help yourself to something to eat and drink in our refreshment area.
  • Bring your ID—something with your name and one of the following: date of birth, donor ID number or your photo.
  • You must wait eight weeks between whole blood donations. Learn more about specific intervals for other types of donation.
  • You should not be under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs at the time of donation.

Reminder to blood donors:




BONE MARROW REGISTRY DRIVE

Every 3 minutes, someone is diagnosed with blood cancer. You could be the cure. 

There will be an information session at Gurley Commons Area at 12:00-1:00PM. The registry drive will run from 9:00AM till 2:00PM.


Here are two short videos that show the importance and power of the registry. Can't Wait To Meet & Robin Roberts PSA  



Our community needs your help. If you are not able to donate, you can still help by spreading the word and recruiting potential donors. Please help us share this information to anyone who may be interested. Thank you.

Scheduled Fire Drills with Building evacuation


Greetings everyone,  

Notice that UNM Gallup PPD/FMD  will be performing building fire drills and fire equipment tests beginning  9-4-19 at 8:30AM through 5:00PM on Thursday 9-5-19 or until all have been completed.  The fire drills and testing are required to be performed annually and are to be conducted during normal operating / occupied hours.  The fire alarms in each building will be activated individually, and all occupants in that building will be required to vacate, during which time our team will be documenting the Drill and testing the equipment throughout the building. Once each inspection is complete, an “ALL CLEAR” notice will be given for reentry and we will move on to the next building accordingly. Each Drill should last no more than 15 minutes.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
