The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center will conduct a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 2, in the Blood Center’s donor coach outside UTHealth Houston School of Dentistry. Donors must be at least 18 years old and present valid ID. Appointments are strongly encouraged and may be made online.
More than 800 donations per day are needed by patients in the Texas Gulf Coast region, and one blood donation can save up to three lives.
UTHealth Houston’s Miscellaneous Leave Policy (HOOP 185) allows paid time off for eligible employees to donate blood up to four times per fiscal year. Documentation is required.
