Wednesday, April 8th, 2:30pm-6:30pm, Renaud Center


Research shows that donating blood benefits both your physical and emotional health. And while blood donations help save the lives of people in critical need, donating blood actually has health benefits for donors, too!

The first benefit you’ll receive is a free mini physical by a trained professional from Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center, who will check your blood pressure, pulse, body temperature, and hemoglobin levels. Then, to ensure safe supplies, your blood will be tested for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, West Nile virus, and a few other diseases. This could effectively detect problems that may indicate an underlying medical condition or risk factors, so that you can take action to maintain your health. Plus, according to the Mental Health Foundation/Healthline, helping others through blood donation can reduce stress and improve emotional well-being.

So Find Your Fit this week by donating blood. Let’s get healthy!
