Bone Marrow Donor Drive Set for Dec. 5

The President’s Committee for Campus Well Being is sponsoring a bone marrow donor drive from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Dec. 5 in the Student Union Building Alumni Room.

During the drive participants will be asked to fill out a consent form and get the inside of their cheeks swabbed for a saliva sample to become a member of the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry. Actual bone marrow donations will not be conducted. The purpose of the drive is to increase the donor pool with volunteers ages 18-44.

Eighty percent of bone marrow donations are of the peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) type, which is similar to giving blood.
