Blood drive garners 50 units

HDA- logoTexas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry's February blood drive was a roaring success, according to Sharon Limes, college nurse in the Student Health Clinic.

Sponsored by the Hispanic Student Dental Association, the blood drive garnered 50 pints of blood that Carter BloodCare says could help save up to 150 lives. It attracted 62 participants, of whom 51 were students. There were 12 deferrals.

“Students really met the challenge,” Limes said. “The HSDA was pretty terrific, too. Their strategic plan got the job done.”

The college's next blood drive is tentatively planned for the fall. Watch for details.
