Blood Drive 10/21/21
It feels good to help others! One of the best ways to do that is by donating blood. Your blood donation could save up to three lives. Not only that, it has many health benefits for those that give blood!
Regular blood donation is linked to lower blood pressure and a lower risk for heart attacks. “It definitely helps to reduce cardiovascular risk factors,” says Dr. Robert DeSimone, chief of transfusion medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
Fun fact: According to the Red Cross, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. requires a blood transfusion.
