Bloodanooga - Fall 2017
On October 24-25, UTC parntered with Blood Assurance to host our 2x yearly Bloodanooga event. It was a great couple of days with UTC students, faculty, and staff breaking their own donation record and donating more units of blood than any other campus in the state of Tennessee so far this year.
The 501 units of blood we collected will go a long way replenishing our hospitals.
Over 167 students registered as possible bone marrow donors with Be the Match are ready to save a life.
Blood Assurance will be back on campus in March 2018. So stay tuned.

Enjoy the pics of our students!
