Blood Drive Results in a Record Collection

Students volunteered at the American Red Cross Blood Drive for their applied learning projects and met with several patients in the Patients Care Sciences. The results set a record for the Madison West campus.

Patient Care Science I students Shella Suby and Shelby Brown help check in donors.

This quarter’s drive brought 41 people signed up to donate and 37 donors who started the process. With a resulting 35 units collected, the drive exceeded the goal along with beating the previous amount collected from last year.

“What an awesome day!” Shared Chad Obright, Academic and Online Coordinator who helped the class schedule the drive. “Many people did their civic duty twice—first by voting and then by giving blood. I appreciate everyone’s patience and willingness to give even though there was quite a wait at times. I also want to pay special thanks for Judy Bukstein and her Patient Care Science class. Their hard work promoting the event helped us get one of our highest donation totals ever.”

Globe University-Madison West echoes this appreciation to all those who showed their “We Care” attitude and looks forward to hosting future blood drives.
