Person Donating Blood

Tuesday, August 14, 2018: Medical advances and modern surgical techniques such as cancer treatments, organ transplants and open-heart surgery have increased the need for blood donations. As a community-based and community-engaged medical school, join us in answering the call for blood donors by participating in the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine annual blood drive with United Blood Services Thursday, Aug. 23 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Center for Molecular Medicine foyer near Pathways café.

For their generosity, donors will receive an automatic entry into a raffle for a pair of tickets to Rib Village at the Nugget Rib Cook-off in Sparks. Book an appointment online, and let's do our part for A Healthy Nevada!
