There are currently 11 million people on the registry, but an average of 60% of people who get called when they’re identified as a match decline to donate bone marrow. Minority groups are in dire need of more registered donors.
The UIW Pre-Pharmacy Association (PPA) will host a second Bone Marrow Drive for registry of new donors on Wednesday, Sept. 17 and Thursday, Sept. 18, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. both days inside Marian Hall Student Center.
The process takes about 10 minutes. Please help PPA exceed the number achieved at last year’s bone marrow drive of 404 registered. For more information, please visit www.BetheMatch.org or contact Candace Graham at (210) 269-5238 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
