Did you know there are currently over 1,000 Canadian patients waiting for a stem cell match? To assist, Humber has partnered with the Canadian Blood Services to host our very first Stem Cell Swabbing Event in hopes a match may be found! Humber Students, Staff and Community Members between the ages of 17-35 were eligible to swab. Information on blood and plasma donation, nutrition and other health-related services were available.
The event took place on Tuesday, October 18th from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the BMO Commons on the main level of G Building. All students, staff, faculty and community members were welcomed. Over 25 folks were swabbed in the hopes of saving a life! No appointment necessary!
