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.
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:
Reminder to blood donors:
- Please bring a valid picture ID, eat a good meal and drink plenty of water.
- To avoid long lines, please make an appointment here: https://www.bloodhero.com/index.cfm?group=op&hlc=UNMGNS&hostlookupcode=UNMGNS Walk-ins are welcome, but we strongly recommend that you make an appointment.
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.
