UMMC Midtown Campus has partnered with the American Red Cross to host blood drives on our campus throughout the year. Donating blood is one of the greatest community services you can provide, and all blood drives at UMMC Midtown Campus are open to the public. Review the information below to see what's involved.
There are many important reasons to give blood--your donation could save three lives, and in the U.S., someone needs blood every two seconds--but the main reason is that it is the right thing to do, and you'll walk a little taller after donating. Give the gift of life and attend one of our upcoming blood drives!
Schedule your blood donation today.
