Annual Blood Drive

Westchester's Med Club works with the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center to organize and host a blood drive each year. This year's blood drive was early in the spring semester. Through the Med Club's students and sponsor Dr. Laura Sigworth, this year's blood drive collected 72 units from 56 eligible donors.

74 donors had signed up ahead of time, and some sign up on the day of. Donors must be 17 or older and weigh at least 110lbs, or 16 with parent permission and weigh at least 122lbs. Potential donors may not be able to donate blood due to factors including iron count, recent illness, or travel to certain regions.
