January is Blood Donor Awareness Month. The next blood drive will be Wednesday, Jan. 29 from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. in the Auditorium Conference Room. All blood donors will receive a T-shirt. Pictured above is Wendy Young, RN, Critical Care as she donates blood at a previous SAMC/LifeSouth blood drive.
LifeSouth suggests you eat iron-rich foods if you regularly have trouble with low hemoglobin levels: Blood bank regulations require screening of every potential blood donor’s hemoglobin level.
