Thanks to the hard work and organizational skills of first-year student M. Walker Schott, the Wake Forest PA program invited the American Red Cross to Biotech Place on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, and more than 30 students came out to give blood. Because of the blood drive’s success, biannual Red Cross blood drives for all of the Innovation Quarter and one annual PA class drive are planned for the future.

According to the American Red Cross website, every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. Amazingly, the Carolinas Blood Services Region must collect a minimum of 1,600 units of blood products daily to meet the needs of patients in more than 100 hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the region. A great deal of blood is needed, but only 8% of the population actually takes the time to donate. Thank you, Walker, for your hard work – and thank you, Class of 2016, for coming out to support the Red Cross. [written by Jana Villanueva, Class of 2016]
