There will be several blood drives in the near future in several towns across Christian County. Libby Bair, Donor Relations Consultant with the Central Illinois Community Blood Center told Regional Radio News about where and when those blood drives will be taking place.
There are several requirements that one needs to meet in order to be able to donate blood. Bair shed light on what those requirements are.
Bair said that you can still donate blood with diabetes and high blood pressure, stating that it was a common misconception that you couldn’t. Bair also said that when you give blood you can save up to three lives. For information on the blood drives or if you’re eligible to donate, call the Central Illinois Community Blood Center at 1-800-747-5401.
