WIN Cleveland Monthly Morning Meeting
Informal Networking begins at 8am;

To meet the transfusion needs of the general population, the donor pool should reflect our population. Only 3% of Red Cross blood comes from African American or black donors. This will outline our plan to close that gap.

Participants will:

Understand the need for blood donors.

Have a better understanding of Sickle Cell disease.

Learn how they can help to recruit more black donors.

All meetings are hybrid. Choose virtual if you know you will not attend in person. All receive the Zoom link to use if the need arises.

$20 for non-members

Parking: pull into Burke Lakefront’s driveway near the jet display (the Thunderbird and Blue Angel)

FREE parking - Do Not enter parking lot.  Park along the curb in front of Gate 3, your entrance.
