Public welcome at residence blood clinic Wednesday

A blood donor clinic scheduled for Vanier Hall on Wednesday is aimed at students living in residence but open to all, says Canadian Blood Services.

The clinic runs 5 to 8 p.m. on January 30 in the Oak Room; as always, walk-in donors are welcome. The entire experience, including health assessment and recovery, takes about an hour.

“Just an hour to help save a life,” says Joan Hannah, community development coordinator for Canadian Blood Services. “We hope students will attend and bring a friend as well!”

She has more than 40 appointment spots available; a campus clinic January 22 collected 111 units, well above the target of 86. To book an appointment, phone Sandra Davis at 519-253-3000, ext. 5067.
