UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic Medicine Sponsors Annual 9/11 Blood Drive
STRATFORD — Each September, the UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic Medicine remembers the 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington by holding a Red Cross Blood Drive as a tribute to those who lost their lives on that day and to help boost the area’s critically low blood supplies. This year’s blood drive will be on Monday, September 10, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the medical school's Academic Center, on East Laurel Road, in Stratford.
“Giving blood is a selfless way to remember the tragedy of that day,” said Dr. Thomas A. Cavalieri, dean of the UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic Medicine. “It’s a truly life affirming activity that honors those who lost their lives that day and who have given their lives since then in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.”
To register as a donor for this blood drive, please call (856) 566-6207 or e-mail email@example.com.
