Blood Drive set for November 10
Michigan Blood is hosting an upcoming community blood drive on Friday, November 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Frederick S. Upton Education Center at Lakeland Medical Center, St. Joseph, located at 1234 Napier Avenue.
Michigan Blood is an independent, non-profit blood bank that is the provider of choice for Michigan hospitals, including Lakeland Health facilities. Community blood drives benefit local patients, including those receiving treatment for trauma, surgery, those with bleeding disorders, and those undergoing treatment for cancer. According to Michigan Blood, one out of every seven people entering the hospital will need blood, and 4.5 million Americans would die each year without blood transfusions.
Any healthy person age 17 or older (or age 16 with permission from a parent or guardian) and weighing at least 112 pounds is welcome to donate blood. Participants should plan on 45 to 60 minutes for the entire donation process, including a brief pre-donation health screening and a snack/rest period following donation.
To learn more about blood donation, visit www.miblood.org or call 866-MI-BLOOD.
