National Blood Donor Month

0 Comments | | Return |
National Blood Donor Month has been observed in January since 1970, with the goal of increasing blood and platelet donations during the winter. One of the most difficult times of the year to collect enough blood products to meet patient needs. Extreme winter weather often results in canceled blood drives, and seasonal illnesses like flu and/or COVID-19 may cause donors to become temporarily unable to donate.
