Duke’s First Ever Bone Marrow Registration Drive!

Intimidated? Don’t be. Did you know 75% of modern marrow donations involve just giving blood, much the same way you already do? Finding marrow donors is extremely difficult due to misconceptions about donation, some of which many Duke students have.

Duke Diya, DSI, and Duke Lambdas will be hosting West Campus’ first-ever Bone Marrow Registration Drive this Wednesday, October 9 from 4-7PM on the BC Plaza. We will also accept FLEX donations to help Be The Match cover the cost of adding donors to their registry.

Joining the registry only takes a cheek swab. Please consider coming out on the 9th and joining for free! You can sign up for a time slot to speed up registration at http://bit.ly/dukemarrow or show up at your convenience next Wednesday. 

Thanks everyone who came out and registered! If you didn’t get a chance to register, no worries! Another bone marrow drive is prospectively planned for sometime in the spring!
