Blood donation at USI

On Thursday, April 26, from 10AM to 4PM in Room 351, USI welcomes on the Lugano campus the blood donation day, organised in cooperation with the Swiss Red Cross Blood Transfusion Centre

You are eligible to donate blood if you are in good health, weigh more than 50Kg and if you are 18 or older. All you have to do is show up at the welcome desk with a photo ID, and after having had a full meal.

One single donation can help up to three different patients. There are plenty of reasons to donate blood, as explained by a few donors in this video clip: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTD_B4H4LZg
