MTSU’s latest contribution to the continuing need for blood in the region is the subject of a recent edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Regina Raccuglia Conway, communications manager for the Tennessee Valley Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross, aired earlier this month on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org ). You can listen to their conversation here.
Conway, an MTSU alumna, is promoting the “True Blue Blood Drive,” which is slated for Oct. 21-23 at MTSU’s Student Health, Wellness and Recreation Center.
Appointments are available from noon to 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, and Wednesday, Oct. 23.
“Blood is a perishable product,” Conway said. “It can only stay on the shelf for 42 days. … The need is constant because this stuff doesn’t last forever, and we’ll always have patients.”
