ULA Conference Publicity: Blood Drive

Open The Doors copy

As ULA 2016 approaches, please consider participating in the blood drive. Our goal is to get 35 units of blood donated; so far we have 4 donors signed up. We’ll have a fun “thermometer” on site to help track our progress. See the flier image below for the date/time/location and instructions on how to sign up online. There will also be a sign-up sheet at the conference registration desk.

If you can’t donate blood, you can still help. Sign up as a volunteer at the donor registration or refreshment table.
