The Latest Urgent Call To Action For Blood Donations

Blood Assurance banner
Blood Assurance

We’ve heard this many times in the past few years: If you can give blood, please give blood now.

That call from Blood Assurance is as critical as ever here in Chattanooga, the Tennessee Valley and beyond.

Dr. Liz Culler is chief medical officer of Blood Assurance - and J.B. Gaskins is its president and CEO.

Bloodanooga is the annual blood donation drive on our campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

The drive - which supports Blood Assurance - takes place today and tomorrow from 10 AM to 6 PM in the University Center.
