On Thursday, October 30, 2014, Student Nurses’ Association (SNA), a student-led leadership non-profit organization registered with UH Manoa, held a Bone Marrow Donor Registration Drive at Campus Center. SNA partnered with the Delete Blood Cancer organization that provided the supplies necessary to hold a successful drive. The registration process was fairly simple, and interested participants filled out a registration/consent form and then swabbed the inside of each of their cheeks for 30 seconds.
The event was a success! In total, SNA added 60 new potential bone marrow donors to the registry!
