NYUCD completed its third annual New York Blood Center Blood Drive,
collecting 94 pints of blood in just five-and-a-half hours. In both
2003 and 2004, the blood drive was conducted over two days, but the
totals were 46 pints and 39 pints, respectively. A total of 131 NYUCD
students, faculty, and staff donated blood; at least 100 additional
people had to be turned away because of time constraints.
thanks for the success of this drive go to project coordinator Dr.
Andrew I. Spielman, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, and to ASDA
representatives Michael Vilacarlos, Class of 2007; Rachel Karni,
Class of 2007; and Justin Seaman, Class of 2008, who mobilized the
student body. "We are very proud of our volunteers," said
Dr. Spielman. "They demonstrated a true ‘esprit de corps’ on
behalf of a life-saving community mission."
