Description
The Morgridge Center for Public Service, American Red Cross, and Urban League of Greater Madison have teamed up to host special blood drives aimed at raising awareness about Sickle Cell Disease. It is important that blood donors reflect the ethnic diversity of the patients who receive their blood. Patients with Sickle Cell Disease – primarily those in the African-American community – are less likely to have complications from blood donated by African Americans.
