Bone Marrow Registration Drive

Location: Red room

Stop by and maybe save a life.

As part of our community service efforts this quarter we are partnering with DKMS to add people to the National Marrow Donor ProgramĀ® (NMDP) Registry.

Students, staff, faculty and members of the public are invited to register as potential bone marrow donors (please read eligibility requirements below). The testing process is extremely simple - swabbing the inside of the cheek with a q-tip. If a registrant is identified as a potential match he or she can still choose not to be a donor. Donating is generally as simple as giving blood.

Registering is free though donations for DKMS will be accepted.

For information about do-it-yourself registering go to www.deletebloodcancer.org.
