Bone Marrow Donor Registration Drive - Ohlone College Asian Pacific American Student Association (APASA)

Swab to Save a Life!

Take your first step in becoming a Bone Marrow Donor organized by the Ohlone College Asian Pacific American Student Association (APASA) and the Asian American Donor Program (AADP). You could be the one to save a life.

Everyone is encouraged to register as a potential marrow/stem cell donor on:

  • Tuesday, March 10, 2015
  • 10:00am - 1:00pm
  • Outside Hyman Hall, Fremont campus

The registration is part of an effort by the AADP to encourage more donors from Asian, Pacific Islander, African American, Latino, Native American and multiracial backgrounds to join the Donor Registry.

Ethnicity is one of the key factors that determine whether donor marrow match can be made, and there is a critical shortage of donors from these backgrounds.

To register, donors will need to submit a short health history, driver’s license or Social Security number, and the names, addresses and telephone numbers of two friends or relatives who do not live with the donor or each other.

For more information, go to the Asian American Donor Program website at www.aadp.org or the National Marrrow Donor Program at www.marrow.org, or email APASA at Ohlone at apasa@gmail.com.

Thank you!
