BCAW 2013: Minority Bone Marrow Registry Drive

Minority Bone Marrow Registry Drive
Monday, Nov 4 | 10am – 2pm | MU Student Center Student Center room 2206C

For people with life-threatening cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, bone marrow transplants can be a life-saving experience. Come learn about the Bone Marrow Registry and why it’s important to increase the number of minorities registered in the registry. Joining the registry takes 15 minutes. After a check against health guidelines and then a quick cotton swab insides one’s cheek, those who attend the drive will be added to the registry, and could possibly save a life. Be The Match registry professionals will be on hand to answer questions and guide interested students through the registry process.  Cosponsored by: the Multicultural Center and the Be The Match registry.

This event is apart of the GOBCC’s annual Black Culture Awareness Week taking place November 3-8, 2013. Fore more information regarding the weeks events, please contact the GOBCC or visit our events page.
