Dental Assistant students host bone marrow registration

Valentine’s Day is almost here and GRCC Dental Assistant students are asking you to “marrow” them!

On February 12th and 15th, GRCC Dental Assisting students are hosting Will You Marrow Me GRCC, a bone marrow donor registration drive. Bone marrow donations give someone a chance to overcome life-threatening diseases like leukemia and lymphoma. Seventy percent of patients who need a life-saving donor will not find that matching donor in their family. They must turn to the Be The Match bone marrow registry to find an unrelated donor. All it takes to join is swabbing the inside of your cheeks with a cotton swab and filling out a brief consent form.

Consider learning more at the upcoming Will You Marrow Me GRCC event.

  • Monday February 12, 8-11am, 1st floor of the Student Activity Center
  • Thursday February 15, 8-11am, 4th floor Main
