OBI Blood Drive
March 26, 2015
Donors may give blood every 56 days and if you gave at the last RSU Blood Drive enough time has elapsed! Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are available.
The best way to make your appointment is directly through the OBI website. However, you may contact Dr. Kevin M. P. Woller at firstname.lastname@example.org. Making an appointment can help cut down the time of donation by putting you "at the front of the line" for that time slot.
Blood donated to the Oklahoma Blood Institute stays right in here in Oklahoma to help statewide victims of disasters and accidents, as OBI is a local non-profit blood bank that provides blood for over 85% of the state of Oklahoma's hospital facilities. Please be sure to BRING A PICTURE ID!
All donors will receive a free t-shirt and can choose from free food and drink for their kind contribution. They will also receive several health screenings and can also sign up for the "Members for Life" program which will allow them online access to test results from the donation including the free cholesterol screening. The "Members for Life" program also awards points for each donation that can be used to earn various items such as jackets, sweatshirts, gift cards (for Wal-Mart, restaurants, and gas) and other items. For more information check the OBI website at: http://www.obi.org/
For all donors who need to save time. OBI continues in their use of the "Donor Express" program. This can help shave 10-15 minutes off your donation time! Donor Express allows you to complete your pre-donation health questions online in the comfort of your home or workplace on the day you come in to donate. It will save you the time of answering these questions when you arrive, and it is confidential. To take advantage of this time saving system, here is what you do:
Remember that there is a computer lab in the Centennial Center for your convenience.
