National Cesar E. Chavez Blood Drive Challenge

On February 5th, 2014 | Comments Off

Save a Life, Give Blood.

Did you know that someone in the US receives blood every 2 seconds?

Invoking the name and legacy of César E. Chávez, the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA)-West, in conjunction with LMSA National, BloodSource and the Migrant Students Foundation will be taking part in the César E. Chávez Blood Drive Challenge on Saturday, March 22, 2013.

LMSA-West would like to cordially invite you to participate in our blood drive being held during our 30th annual Regional conference:  Transforming Our Script in Medicine.  This is the first year that LMSA-West has partnered with LMSA National for its National Latino Healthcare Day.  What better way to celebrate our 30th anniversary than by continuing the legacy of Cesar E. Chavez and bring awareness to a good cause: blood donation?

The blood drive will be held throughout the 30th Annual Conference at the Double Tree hotel in Sacramento. If you would like to participate and donate blood please indicate it on your conference registration under the “Participate in Blood Drive tab”.  Our VP of Community Affairs will then contact you with further information.

Questions? Please contact our VP of Community Affairs: Sonia Morales (VP_CommunityAffairs@lmsa.net)
