Michigan Medicine faculty and staff will soon have the ability to donate blood and assist those who need it.

On July 14 and 15, the American Red Cross will hold a blood drive in the Towsley Center lobby.

The drive will be held from 6:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. each day. Please be advised that once again, this drive will be limited to Michigan Medicine employees only in order to comply with the COVID-19 visitor policy. Drives have been filling up fast, so it is recommended that individuals make an appointment as soon as possible. Walk-ins will not be accepted.

Details about donating or volunteering at the drive can be found here.
