Bone marrow drive set for May 8
National Marrow Donor Program graphicUW-Eau Claire's Epsilon Omicron chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education, will sponsor a bone marrow drive from noon to 7 p.m. May 8 in the Arrowhead Room of Davies Center.

During the drive, participants will register for the National Marrow Donor Program. The registry helps doctors find donor matches for patients in need. According to the National Donor Program, patients of all racial and ethnic backgrounds are in urgent need of donors to survive, and the best chance for a marrow match is between people who share the same heritage.

To join, people must be between the ages of 18 and 60, be willing to donate to any patient in need, and meet the health guidelines found at the National Marrow Donor Web site. More information. Go to top of page
