Blood Drive

PHS Officers – WE NEED YOU! Please consider making a blood donation during the Symposium. 

The American Red Cross is the nation’s largest blood collection organization—it supplies roughly 40 percent of the blood and blood products used in the United States. Every year, patients at approximately 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country receive Red Cross blood products.

You can support this cause by donating during the 2015 USPHS Symposium. This year’s blood drive will occur on Wednesday, May 20, 10:00-15:00 at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel in Georgia 13.
