Hoxworth's All-Campus Blood Drive a Record-Breaking Success

Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati, reports that its  All-Campus winter blood drive was a record-breaking success, registering 1,613 donors. It was the largest mobile blood drive held in Hoxworth's 75-year history. All donors received an official "COLLEGE” sweatshirt.
 
The blood drive registered 1,613 individuals and collected 1,243 life-saving blood products, enough to save more than 3,729 lives in the Tristate. The drive also recruited 439 first-time donors, reports Alecia Lipton, Hoxworth's community relations manager.

The All-Campus fall blood drive was the previous record-breaking drive for the university, with 1,513 registered donors. 

"The recent inclement weather has negatively impacted blood collection,” says Ronald Sacher, MD, Hoxworth's director and a professor of medicine and pathology at the UC College of Medicine. "The record-breaking success at the University of Cincinnati ensured that we had enough blood products for patients in our area hospitals.

"We are very grateful for the generosity of the students, faculty, staff and President Santa Ono for their participation and support of our mission to save lives through blood donation.”
 
The next All-Campus blood will be held Monday, April 7, through Friday, April 11.
