Be a Part of the 1%

Approximately 1% of New Yorkers donate blood each year, causing a drastic shortage of blood in the state. Join this group of life-savers as the Pace Physician Assistant Program hosts a blood drive on March 8 in NYC.

Each day, patients in our region need close to 2,000 people a day to roll up their sleeves and give the gift of life.

On Friday, March 8, the Physician Assistant Program’s Class of 2014 is organizing a blood drive for the New York Blood Center on from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Student Union in NYC.

Students and faculty are invited to sign up to donate by e-mailing Send your name and whether or not you would like to sign up to donate blood and/or be put on the bone marrow registry. Their goal of more than 70 donations is tough, so stop by and show your support for our PA students and those in need. Remember, the life you save may be your own.
