Penn Blood Drive: May 2

The American Red Cross will hold a faculty/staff blood drive on Tuesday, May 2, 2006, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. in the 1949 Room (2nd floor) of Houston Hall.  There is a critical need for blood right now, so please sign up to donate if you are eligible at http://givesblood.org/go.php?bdc=364405.

As usual, we will try to accommodate walk-ins as well as those who have appointments, but please try to arrange an appointment time. If you have questions about your eligibility, check out the ARC website: www.pleasegiveblood.org/.

A reminder for first-time donors: you must weigh at least 110 pounds. You will want to “iron-up” about a week before donation by eating foods rich in iron, such as poultry, red meat, green leafy vegetables or raisins. And please, eat a meal before you donate (breakfast, lunchnot just a carrot or a banana!). You should also double your intake of water the day before and the day after donation. Again, if you have further questions about donation or eligibility, please e-mail Evalyn B. Gelhaus at gelhaus@pobox.upenn.edu or call (215) 451-4363.
