Xavier students donate blood and save lives

Hoxworth Blood Center at the University of Cincinnati was founded in 1938 and serves 31 hospitals in 17 counties in Southwestern Ohio, Northern Ky. and Southeastern Ind.
Hoxworth collects over 90,000 units of blood annually from local donors to help save the lives of patients
in their area hospitals. At least 400 products are essential each day to keep up with the demands of tri-state hospitals and their patients.
Hoxworth brings the opportunity to Xavier students to donate blood. There is a sign-up table with information available a week prior to the Hoxworth mobile donation center coming to campus. Students are free to sign up and schedule an appointment to donate or to just walk in and donate. The entire process takes about an hour.
The Hoxworth Blood Center wraps up its stay at Xavier's campus today. There are only a few requirements
to donate blood: you have to be at least 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health, have not had any major surgeries within recent months and have no active cold symptoms.
The Hoxworth staff can answer any questions or concerns you might have.
