The Fort Collins campus of IBMC will host a blood drive on February 5, 2013.

For faculty, staff and students interested in participating, sign-up sheets are available at the Education Desk. Walk-ins are always welcome and community members are invited to join the cause.

Some interesting facts about blood donation:

  • Only 5 percent of eligible donors across the nation donate blood, but the number of transfusions nationwide increases by 9 percent every year.
  • Whole blood donors can donate as frequently as every 56 days. A benefit from donating this often is that you receive a mini-physical once every two months.
  • Each whole blood donation can help as many as three people.

Thanks for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you on February 5th at IBMC Fort Collins! Please feel free to contact the campus with any questions.
