Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (68, and counting) leading to a loss of more than 2200 donations due to record cold tempatures, snow, and ice.
If you are able to safely travel to donate blood this week, please do. To find a donation location near you, call (800) 747-5401, visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
With another winter storm on the way to portions of our service region, we will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather at www.bloodcenter.org/weather.
To encourage the exchange of technical information between hospital transfusion services and the Blood Center, we host Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) meetings at the Davenport headquarters and Ottumwa, St. Louis, Springfield and Urbana regional offices several times each year.TAC meetings help the Blood Center respond to issues our service hospitals have in common, and allow hospital representatives to gain insight into the products and services the Blood Center offers. The Blood Center also provides regulatory and process change information to the hospital transfusion services at these meetings.
TAC meetings are open to all staff members from our service hospitals. Hospitals may send more than one representative to the meetings, if desired. Participants are invited to submit questions and topics for discussion in advance of each meeting.To RSVP for a meeting, contact the representative below.Adam Wennmacher, email@example.com | (563) 823-4129
