Our blood supply needs constant replenishment, since the need for blood never takes a vacation. Statistics say that nine out of ten people will need blood some time in their lives and that one out of every ten hospital patients requires a transfusion.
Long Island College Hospital, in conjunction with the Brooklyn /Staten Island Blood Center will hold a blood drive on Monday, December 7th, 2009. More information about times and locations after the jump.
TIME: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
PLACE: Avram Conference Center, Rooms C & D
Long Island College Hospital
