CAS Students Boost Bone Marrow Registry

Posted on: April 2, 2013

The CAS Health and Risk Communications Center (HRCC) held another successful bone marrow registry drive on March 28. As a result of the drive, 56 new potential donors joined the "Be the Match" Registry.

"Please thank everyone that helped make this event a success," said Kona Dominick of Michigan Blood-Stem Cell Programs. "As always, your volunteers were wonderful to work with. The students that came to learn about the registry came with an eagerness to learn more. I am very confident in the 56 students that I joined. I have faith that if called upon, they will answer the call."

"This was another great year for the bone marrow drive," said Kami Silk, associate dean for graduate studies and coordinator of the drive. "With 56 new people signed up for the registry, there are 56 additional chances for a match for those in need of bone marrow. The HRCC looks forward to hosting another drive next year so we can continue to do our part in connecting people with 'Be the Match.'"

This is the sixth year that CAS has helped build the bone marrow registry.
