Blood Donation - Nabatieh Campus
The safest blood donors are voluntary, non-paid blood donors. This being said, the Biomedical Science Department (BMED) in Nabatieh campus and in collaboration with The Islamic Health Society-South section hosted Blood donation campaign event at LIU-Nabatieh campus.
Two days before the campaign, the BMED students distributed flyers among the campus (students, staff, and instructors) to encourage people donating blood and inspired those who have not yet donated blood to start donating. Distributed message emphasizes the importance of this blood donation as well as the eligibility requirements for blood donors (Any healthy person aged between 18 and above with the minimum weight of 50 kg).
On November 9, the campaign took place from 9:00 AM till 12:00 PM. LIU-Nabatieh students had the opportunity to voluntary donate their blood. Blood donors were asked to fill a questionnaire regarding donor history, then blood pressure and hemoglobin level were obtained prior blood donation. More than 70 students applied for blood donation and blood was taken from donors with acceptable safety conditions.
