CBS visits campuses to recruit students for stem cell donor database

Canadian Blood Services (CBS) is visiting campuses across Canada to recruit students to a potential stem cell donor database. Those who are between the ages of 17 and 35 are invited to have their information added to a database of potential matches for those in need of stem cell donations. CBS has already visited the University of New Brunswick and Mount Allison University and will appear on campuses in Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia in the coming weeks. “Universities tend to have the perfect demographic for us,” said CBS community development manager Chris vanDoorn. “There is a good audience of students there, lots of foot traffic.”
