November 1 challenge to register stem cell donors for patients in need

The ethnic diversity on campus makes the University of Windsor an ideal place to seek stem cell donors, says Bryan Bedard, president of the Katelyn Bedard Bone Marrow Association. The most particular current need is for males in good health who are between 17 and 35 years old and of Asian or African heritage.

Bedard’s association will partner with the OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network to host the Windsor campus Get Swabbed event on Thursday, November 1, part of a national effort to register potential donors.
