Students organize bone marrow drive

APAMSA Bone Marrow Drive

Students from the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association and Student National Medical Association hosted a bone marrow drive with Be The Match at Secchia Center on October 29. During the event, thirty new potential donors registered with the National Marrow Donor Program. Through a cheek swab, each donor's tissue type was filed for a potential match with a bone marrow transplant patient. This simple process can make a big impact in the life of someone with blood cancer, a diagnosis that occurs every four minutes in the United States.
