Winter is one of the most challenging times of the year to collect enough blood products and donations to meet patient needs. That’s why National Blood Donor Month is celebrated every January.
This year’s national health observance comes as the nation’s blood supply has dropped to concerning levels and could delay essential blood and platelet transfusions. Blood donors of all blood types—particularly type O blood—are needed to give blood or platelets to help meet daily hospital demands.
This month, resolve to be a blood donor and learn more about the health benefits of donating blood regularly in our Live Well, Work Well Newsletter!
